Installation of section of 600mm diameter water main from Dalebrook to Leighton Rd, St James

Construction work with respect to the installation of a section of the 600mm bulk water main (ductile iron steel pipe) from Dalebrook Road to Leighton Road has commenced. The laying of this section of the pipeline is being undertaken in conjunction with works in Section 2B Northbound, Phase 1 in terms of the scheduled programme.

A separate traffic control system will be operated with stop-go boards over a restricted length of approximately 50 meters to minimise inconvenience. As such, there are now two separate sections operating with one-way traffic, that is, the stop-go in Section 2B Northbound and the additional 50 meter stop-go.

Please note that the delay at the stop-go may extend beyond the 10 minutes (up to 20 minutes) whilst this section of pipeline is being laid. Motorists are asked to be patient during this time. Main Road will be open to two way traffic every night from latest 18h00 to 07h30 the following day. The trench dug to install this section of pipeline will be closed and a temporary gravel surface will be reinstated each night. Boyes Drive can be used as an alternative route during the day.

It is anticipated that the installation of this section of the pipeline will be completed by end July 2010.
