Each year, Council carries out annual maintenance of its stormwater system to extend the life of its asset. Stormwater relining is a trenchless technology used to rehabilitate existing underground stormwater pipes and involves inserting a structural liner inside the existing pipe to improve its strength and functionality. Access to the stormwater pipe is gained through existing manholes.

Downer Group has been engaged by Council to undertake these relining activities. Little or no excavation works are required during the process and there should be no disruption to residents whilst the works are being undertaken. Residents may however notice an increase in noise, lighting and vehicle movements in the area. Working hours will typically be 7.00am to 6.00pm Mondays to Fridays and 7.00am to 4.00pm Saturdays however some Sunday work may be required.

Works will be undertaken at the below locations over the coming months. Please note that construction dates are estimates only and this schedule can change due to weather, contractor and material delays.
