Initial work has started on the pipeline corridor that will run along Wallace Street and connect the city network to the reservoir. At this stage the works are focused on Hargreaves Street, so will not disrupt traffic along Wallace Street. However, once work commences in this area, unfortunately there will be disruptions to traffic along this main arterial route. Work is anticipated to start the week following Queen's Birthday weekend, 3 June. Traffic management will be in place and we ask for patience and understanding as we complete this critical piece of work building the resilience of our city.
Meanwhile detailed design of the reservoir is to be completed by the end of May and construction will start in March 2020.
