Update of construction schedule
Detailed design of the new wastewater treatment plant continues and principal contractor Downer Tenix expects to establish the site mid-October. Earthworks are scheduled to commence in the first week of November, with civil and structural works to follow in late November and continue until August 2016.
Residents may notice an increase in heavy vehicles on the island and traffic on Tramican Street from mid-October until the end of the year as the project team mobilises and equipment is transported to site.
Construction is expected to be completed by the end of August 2016, weather permitting. The new plant will then be commissioned, with peak flow testing over the busy Christmas holiday period. The project is expected to be completed by early 2017 and the existing plant demolished once the new plant is operational.
