Mollison St where the work will take place

Welcome to Week 16 of this massive infrastructure project on your doorstep.

Firstly, thanks for your amazing patience in helping us deliver these works which will help make sure we can cope with future needs in your area.

This week’s works will see us continue to build the new sewer maintenance holes inside the two shafts (see second and third photo) which will soon be filled in completely and the area reinstated so traffic flow can return to normal on Hockings Street. We will also continue the slow drill through heavy rock from the shaft in front of 26 and 30 Mollison Street towards the pit in front of Monty’s Spare Parts.

What we need you to know is that we are expecting to start digging the next big shaft (similar to the one at the front of 26 and 30 Mollison Street) in the road and footpath area in front of The Markets Shopping Centre on Monday, 21 July 2014.

While these works will not block any access to the shopping centre, the bus stop will need to be moved about 20 metres towards Montague Road on the same side as its current location. The new location will be where the bus is in the first attached photo. Brisbane City Council will arrange appropriate on site notices to advise of the new bus stop location.

We will be delivering the attached letter to all residents and businesses in our works area later this week. It would be great if you could please pass this email on to anyone you believe may need to know this information.

Shortly, the Project Team is also planning to start work on underground drilling from the shaft in front of 26 and 30 Mollison Street towards the yet-to-be built shaft in front of the shopping complex.

Please feel free to let us know by commenting on this story, if you have any queries and we will do our very best to assist you.

Have a wonderful Winter week this Joyous July

Dylan Olliver
