    We recently completed the upgrade to the Community Wastewater Management Scheme, delivered by external contractors.

    Part of this project involved roadworks and resurfacing along a section of Main Road. The road, owned by the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI), was recently inspected and found to have structural defects. These defects were caused by the extreme heatwave experienced in early March.

    However, if the relevant specifications and appropriate construction methods were used, the road should not have deteriorated under the heatwave conditions. for this reason, the external contractors have been issued with a defect notification.

    Plans are being made to have this work completed by a different contractor at no additional expense to Council. However, this will unfortunately mean additional disruptions for local residents while the work is completed.

    We are waiting for clarification on the timing of this work and will keep everyone informed via this page.

    We sincerely apologise for the further inconvenience this will cause, however the road must meet all required specifications to be certified by DPTI and deliver trouble free use for many years to come.

    You may have noticed us excavating in the same place multiple times. This construction required that a number of areas were excavated more than once to allow new infrastructure to be installed and, once installed, the existing infrastructure could be interconnected. This is the only way wastewater pipework can be constructed to maintain a continuous working wastewater system at all times throughout the construction period.

    Final commissioning of the newly installed Wastewater infrastructure was completed on Monday 11 February 2019 which has now enabled final reinstatement and site clean up to take place.

    The road reinstatement was inspected on 18 Feb by our managing contractor TRILITY along with council representatives. The reinstatement work on Main Road is scheduled to be completed by 22 Feb.

    Main Road, McLaren Flat, is a Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure (DPTI) (State Government) road and final reinstatement work is being carried out in accordance with their required specifications. The final reinstatement works will be inspected by DPTI, TRILITY and Council prior to project completion.

    We are still on track to complete this project in March 2019 and will continue to keep the community informed as work progresses. We apologise for any inconvenience.
