Connections to be made to supermarket construction site

There will be some disruptions to traffic movement in Maclean from probably Wednesday next week as the Clarence Valley Council installs water and sewer services to the new supermarket being built off Centenary Drive.

Development engineer, Nigel Sutton, said that from about Wednesday to Monday August 27 a section of Centenary Drive would be closed to the public for excavation work to be done on the water and sewer mains that sit beneath the road.

He said access for service vehicles would be provided to the northern end of the road via a detour on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

“On those days we will do the excavation,” he said.

“To keep disruptions to a minimum we won’t break into the water mains until the Sunday, but there will be some businesses affected. There will be no water services while the connections are made, but we are confident that will be finished on Sunday.

“We will letterbox drop businesses in the area to let them know our plans.”

Mr Sutton said businesses on the river side of River Street would not be affected as separate lines serviced those areas.

“We apologise for the inconvenience and disruption, but there is no other way to get these services connected,” he said.
