This work involves removal and replacement of the drainage culvert underneath the road which is located between property no. 192 Newell St (Oxlades Art Supplies) and no. 194-196 Newell St (Mannings Pies), at the Newell St intersection.

Please observe and obey traffic controllers and signs advising the changes to normal traffic conditions, and follow detours as sign posted.
