Night time works in your area starting March 2021

You might not notice a lot of the work we do because most of it is beneath your feet. Every day, we’re maintaining and upgrading the pipes and pumps that keep water flowing. With some upcoming works in Queens Road, Albert Park you might see us or our contractor Interflow around.

Here’s what to expect while we get the job done.

What we're doing

This project is to upgrade water pipes within Queens Road, Albert Park to ensure a reliable water supply.

You shouldn’t notice any change to your water or sewerage services while we work. 

It will be undertaken from Lakeside Drive, across Queens Road to the junction with Union Street.

When it's happening

Night works will occur Sunday to Thursday during the hours of 6 pm to 5 am. Construction will commence on Sunday 1 March 2021 for approximately four weeks (weather permitting). 

On the odd occasion, we may need to work at other times for safety or technical reasons.

What might impact you

We’ll do our best to keep impacts to a minimum, however these are the kinds of things you might notice while we work:

  • More trucks on the streets around you.
  • Less car parks around the work zones.
  • Noise from machinery, like beepers when trucks reverse.
  • A change in normal traffic flow.
  • Lights as we work at night.
  • Our traffic management team will be around to make sure people, bikes and cars can move around safely.
