Construction has commenced
Project contractor Downer Tenix advise that construction has commenced on the new wastewater treatment plant at Tramican Street, Point Lookout. Major upcoming activities include:
- Bulk earth works
- Construction of MBR tank (formwork, steel installation and concrete pours)
- Installation of incoming rising mains on the plant access track
- Construction of new administration and blower buildings
Further notifications will be provided of activities that may have a greater impact on the community. These shall be issued closer to the time of each activity.
Downer Tenix will work to minimise impact to the community during construction. In coming weeks, residents may notice excavators and equipment being trucked to site, semi-trailers delivering construction material, and concrete trucks accessing the site via George Nothling Drive and Cumming Parade.
Construction is expected to be completed by the end of August 2016, weather permitting, with the new plant fully operational by early 2017.
The project is a joint initiative of Redland City Council and the Queensland Government and will significantly improve effluent quality while reducing the impact of wastewater on the island’s unique environment.
