  • Careful planning is undertaken by environmental and sustainability specialists to minimise tree and vegetation
    removal and reduce impacts to flora and fauna.
  • Throughout works, environment controls such as no-go zones are in place to protect sensitive areas, including a
    protected rusty gum tree on Reserve Street.
  • During the vegetation removal process, arborists and wildlife handlers will be on site to ensure the protection
    and safe relocation of wildlife.

What to expect

  • Construction works, vehicles and equipment on site
  • Temporary lane closures and reduced speed limits along Clyde Road
  • Traffic management to help drivers and pedestrians move safely through the area
  • No changes to business and property access
  • Noise levels will be monitored and minimised as much as possible.

Works will generally take place Monday to Friday, 7am to 6pm, and Saturdays 7am to 1pm subject to weather
