ROMA SEWER NETWORK UPGRADES
SEWER MAIN DIVERSION TO COMMENCE IN GREGORY STREET, ROMA
Works will commence on Gregory Street in Roma next week on Monday, 27 August 2018 to install a new sewer pipe to upgrade Roma’s Sewerage Network.
The project was awarded to local business Suffcon Pty Ltd and will take place on Gregory Street with the new pipe to run from 55 Gregory Street to Bungil Street.
Councillor David Schefe, Portfolio Chair for Utilities said that the new sewer line has been designed to keep up during periods of peak demand.
“By providing additional capacity within the network, it will allow for the sustainability and growth of Roma’s Sewerage Network,” Cr Schefe said.
Works will include the installation of 310 metres of sewer pipes and the construction of three manholes. The project is anticipated to take eight weeks to complete (weather permitting).
Residents are advised that there will be traffic detours in place while works are underway on McDowall Street, Gregory Street and Bungil Street.
Works will be coordinated to minimise disruption to residential access where possible. Suffcon Pty Ltd and Council staff will liaise with residents on a regular basis to minimise these effects.
Council apologises for any inconvenience and thanks you for your patience.
