What to expect while we work in Evelyn Street, Frankston

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 sewerage services flowing. With some upcoming works in Evelyn Street, Fletcher Road and O'Grady Avenue, Frankston you might see us or our contractor Fulton Hogan Delplant Beca (FHDB) Joint Venture around.

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

What we're doing

This project is to divert the sewer, which currently runs through a car park, from Fletcher road, along Evelyn Street to O'Grady Avenue Reserve. This is to enable construction of a new building at Frankston Court House. 

We're working with Fulton Hogan Delplant Beca Joint Venture to help us.

When it's happening

Works to commence mid August 2020 and will take around seven months to complete (depending on the weather).

You can expect us to work Monday to Friday between 8 am and 6 pm. On the odd occasion, we might 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.
  • Traffic impacts on Fletcher Road and Evelyn Street.
  • Noise from machinery, like beepers when trucks reverse.
  • Less car parks on Evelyn Street and O'Grady Avenue.
  • Temporary lane and footpath closures on Fletcher Road.
  • You'll notice that our traffic management team are around too, to make sure people, bikes and cars can move around safely.
