  • Works duration - It is expected that night works will commence on Sunday 2nd April and proceed for up to 10 nights. No works are planned for Friday or Saturday nights.
  • Work site set-up – Set up a fenced compound with traffic control at each manhole.
  • Noise Management - Noise attenuation measures will be in place to minimise noise impacts on local residents.
