What disruption is expected?

Council will be working closely with CA&I to minimise disruption to residents and businesses.

We will endeavor to provide access to shops and businesses at all times, however, there will be some unavoidable disruptions to access, parking and pedestrian traffic.

In addition, access to the Community Centre may be restricted outside of hours and limited through use normal hours by use of alternate local arcade entrances or from Young Street or Waters Road whilst the paving is being completed here, signage will be in place.

We will also endeavor to minimise the noise from our works, but some construction activities will generate unavoidable noise.

Council have been informed RMS are working on a drainage solution for the corner of Military Rd and Waters Rd and paving in this location will be put on hold until RMS complete the drainage works, Council has been informed this is anticipated for completion mid to late 2020.
