Allen Street from the middle section to Manchester Street, this will include traffic management on Allen Street and Manchester Street.

SCIRT are continuing their work repairing damaged wastewater systems on the streets east of Colombo Street for the next four months. Pipe lining repairs to the main in the road are nearly complete and the team will now move into in stages two and three of the programme.

SCIRT will be returning to Welles St, St Asaph St, Southwark St, Manchester St, Madras St, Allen St and Dundas St in the next two stages of the repair. 

There will be temporary traffic management while the repair works take place. When the construction crew has completed works in a street they will move to the next street, complete the repair and continue the process until all streets are complete.

Due to Madras Street high water levels, a de-watering pump is needed to
reduce these levels.

The de-watering pump will move in a northerly direction up Madras Street during the duration of the works. This will delay our planned works for about one to two weeks.

The de-watering pump will be in use 24 hours a day and will produce a low humming noise.
