What will the impacts be?

Service locating involves drilling small potholes into the road along the alignment to locate existing underground services such as telecommunications, gas pipes etc.

During the work, residents may notice more noise, dust and vibrations.

Potholes will be temporarily reinstated once work is complete.

Traffic management personnel will be on site to safely assist drivers around the work area.

We understand our work may cause temporary inconveniences and are committed to working with you to minimise impacts.
