Warland St open drain reconstruction to start late June
Contractor Bellwether will commence works on stage 1,2 & 3 of the Warland Street open-drain reconstruction from late-June, 2021.
The drain is being reconstructed from Paradise Street to Warland Street and Warland Street to Milton Street in South Mackay to help reduce flooding in the area.
The works will be carried out Monday to Friday, 6.30am to 6.30pm and Saturday, 7am to 4pm and are expected to be completed by December 2021, weather permitting.
As part of the project, the vegetation and trees in the drainage reserve will be removed to allow for the construction of the new drain and a number of fences will be replaced to be in line with property boundaries.
Property owners whose fences require replacement have been consulted, and the contractor will door-knock these properties prior to the commencement of these works.
During construction, residents will not be able to utilise the drainage reserve and traffic control will be in place on Paradise, Warland and Milton streets to allow work vehicles to enter/exit. Please adhere to all signage and instructions.
There will be some minor noise and dust disturbances associated with these works, however appropriate controls will be in place to minimise these disturbances.
Should you have any questions about the project, please contact council’s Project Manager Chris Martin on 1300 MACKAY (622 529).
