Work has recommenced this week to upgrade an access road on the southern side of Protheroe Road, Joyner, across from the North Pine Water Treatment Plant.

This work was postponed earlier in the year due to unexpected delays.

Working hours are between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Friday, and 7am and 1pm on Saturdays, unless otherwise advised.

A section of Protheroe Road, near Byrnes Road North, has been reduced to one lane of traffic to allow our contractors to work in the roadside. This temporary lane closure will be in place for about three weeks, subject to weather conditions and other unexpected delays.

Equipment includes excavators, small cranes and cutting tools. Some vegetation clearing will be required on Protheroe Road during this work.

If you are in the area, please follow signage and the instructions of our workers, and do not pass any barricades we have erected for your safety. Motorists are asked to take care when driving through construction areas.
