Water main relocation works commenceWater crews will commence work on relocating water mains that are underneath the George Howick St roundabout
There will be some impact on traffic flows during this work.This work will result in one lane of traffic being closed at a time, however the intersection will remain open during this phase of the work.
The anticipated timeframe of the works will be 5 weeks, weather permitting. Due to the complexity of the work and the existing infrastructure, the laying of the new water main will be difficult and this may affect the progress of the works.

George - Howick St intersection closes to trafficThe George Howick St roundabout will be closed to traffic while the roundabout is replaced and rebuilt.
A turning area will be provided in each of the streets near the road closure area so traffic can access businesses along the blocks adjoining the roundabout.
Pedestrian access will remain throughout the works program
The anticipated timeframe of these works will be 8 weeks, weather permitting and again, due to the complexity of the work and the existing infrastructure, the construction of the roundabout and associated roadworks will be difficult and this may affect the progress of the works.
The work will be undertaken by Council crews who will work extended hours to reduce the timeframe for the works.
