Construction update

Most work takes place between 7am–6pm Monday to Friday and 8am–1pm on Saturdays. From time to time, work may need to continue later due to circumstances beyond our control. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Construction vehicles access the site via Kerlew Street, Nulkaba. Please take care when walking or driving near construction sites.

We work to minimise dust on site by spraying, covering or revegetating exposed soil; and covering all trucks carrying soil.
