What to expect

During these works you may notice some intermittent disruptions such as:

  • Light vehicles, trucks and machinery including excavators, mobile cranes, small power tools, drills, saws, minor vibrating equipment and mobile lighting towers to light the work areas at night
  • Temporary traffic changes and reduced speeds
  • Changes around your local area such as construction vehicles, traffic management signs and personnel
  • Some noise, vibration and dust associated with the use of heavy machinery and equipment
  • Placement of temporary fencing around construction areas.

Every effort will be made to keep disruption to a minimum for residents and businesses in proximity to the project site, including:

  • Maintaining access to residents’ properties
  • Keeping higher noise-generating activities to the earlier stages of night shifts wherever possible
  • Ensuring plant / equipment used has been maintained (including noise control devices)
  • Minimising light spill by directing light-generating plant and equipment away from residences
  • Conducting toolbox talks with work crews to remind them of out of hours work protocols (no unnecessary noise).

We appreciate your patience during construction and will continue to update you as work progresses.
