Leakage Reduction

Diversions

  • Barrington Street will be restricted to one lane for the duration of the works with no access from O’Connell Avenue. There will be no vehicular access to Barrington Street from Newenham Street.
  • Vehicles wishing to access Barrington Street will do so via a diversion from Hartstonge Street/Perry Square where traffic will flow back to O’Connell Avenue.
  • Public transport is re-routed through Hartstonge Street in place of Barrington Street for the duration of the works.

Benefits

Reduced Leaks

  • Replacement of water mains and service connections will eliminate existing leaks and reduce the amount of clean drinking water lost into the ground.

A Reliable Water Supply

  • Replacement of water mains and service connections will reduce the instances of bursts and water outages and will ensure a reliable supply of water to customers and local businesses in the area.

Improved Operation and Maintenance

  • These works will deliver cost savings by providing improved water network operation that will require less maintenance in the future.

Affects of Works

  • Areas of work will be limited to short sections to minimise impact on customers. Traffic management may be in place during this time. Local and emergency traffic will be maintained at all times.
  • The works may involve some short-term water shut offs and the project team will ensure that customers are given a minimum of 48 hours notice prior to any planned water shut offs.
  • We understand that this type of work can be inconvenient and works crews will make every effort to minimise any disruption these necessary works cause.
