Update by Paul Davison

Good morning,


It’s been a while since we provided an update but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been busy with our investigation work.

The vast majority of the initial survey work is now complete and we currently updating our model of the existing sewer network so we can progress with developing and refining a solution to reduce the risk of flooding in the area.  In the next couple of months, we will be carrying out further site investigation work within Temple Park and along Prince Edward Road to confirm ground conditions, however, we expect to be able to locate this work off the main road to minimise traffic disruption.

This information will help refine the solution and we hope to be able to share more detailed plans showing the proposed extent of our works in the near future.
