Liverpool Plains Shire Council (LPSC) is advising residents that disruptions to traffic will occur in Quirindi between Monday 5 and Friday 9 November to allow essential watermain repair works to be undertaken.
“One of the pipes beneath the roundabout at George and Henry Streets and the Henry Street rail crossing is being relined due to a failure that occurred in August,” said LPSC Director Engineering Services, Warren Faulkner.
“To allow the works to be undertaken, Campbell Street will be closed in both directions from the 6 November through until Friday 9 at the latest. It will be reopened earlier if the work can be finished ahead of schedule,” he said.
There will be traffic disruptions, including the closure of parking spaces, in Henry Street between George Street and Church Avenue from Monday 5 through until the Friday as well,” he continued.
“The work will see a slip liner placed inside the existing pipe. This will help minimise disruption to traffic and rail services during the period and will be one of the first examples of this replacement method being used in Australia,” he said.
“LPSC apologises for any inconvenience this essential work may cause. However, action now will help improve the integrity of water supply distribution through this part of the network into the future,” Mr Faulkner concluded.
