Site works

Night works are happening in October and November 2018 as part of planning for North East Link.

What are we doing

At this stage of planning, we need to confirm the location of underground services such as power, water and gas that might impact construction.

We'll be digging small trenches to confirm where these services are buried. This involves:

  • Using a road-saw to cut into road and/ or footpath then using high-pressure water and a vacuum to dig a narrow trench to check where underground services run.
  • Ensuring safety of walkers, cyclists and workers, and keeping traffic moving.
  • Reinstating the site once investigations are complete.

Carrying out these works at night rather than during the day is safer for workers and residents, and reduces traffic impacts.

Night works locations

We'll be doing these investigations at various locations in Yallambie, Watsonia, Viewbank, Macleod and Rosanna.

For nearby residents

We'll do our best to minimise impacts to those nearby, but you may experience some noise and light during night works.

We'll be visiting homes around the sites at least two days before any work begins with door knocks and flyers. If you live near a work site you will receive a flyer with dates of works set to happen near you.

A member of our engagement team will be on site during night works and available to talk to you.
