Preliminary Works; Rail Grade Separation.
I received the following advice from Staff today;
Following on from the recent Federal budget advice regarding funding for the rail grade separation at Goodwood / Millswood, DPTI has today advised us that geotechnical investigations (including contamination testing) will commence this week.
The works will occur generally between the Goodwood Railway Station in the north to Meredyth Ave in the south and will also involve night works (midnight to 5am) from next week.
This testing regime is likely to last for 3 - 4 weeks.
DPTI are currently preparing a letter that will be delivered to residents in the affected areas early this week.
As State funding will not be confirmed prior to the Budget announcement(s), the correspondence to residents will describe the works as 'maintenance'.
A copy of the DPTI letter will be forwarded to Members when it is received and the details contained therein will be used to provide information on Councils' web site. Alan Johns.
