Current works

We're continuing North East Link works to move almost 100 power, water, gas, sewerage and telecommunication services with strict health and safety measures in place.

Moving these services is an essential step ahead of major construction starting later this year.

Thank you to residents near work sites for your patience and understanding while we’ve been getting these important works done.
