Updates and announcements

Machinery on site

You may see machinery drive over the area where the brick barrel drain is located. Please be assured this activity has been approved by a structural engineer who has provided a range of measures to be followed to ensure there is minimal vibration or impact on the drain.

Some of these measures include the use of rubber tyres, as well as the use of a 32mm steel plate placed on top of a thick layer of stabilised sand. The machinery will also be traveling at speed less than 10km/h.

All these activities will be monitored to ensure we minimise any impact to the drain during the course of this work.

Future Interpretation and Consultation

A pre-construction interpretation plan has been developed and is on the project website. Roads and Maritime is in the process of developing the final interpretation plan which will involve consultation with community and stakeholder groups including Windsor Regional Museum, historic societies and the community.

We are currently working closely with heritage experts to determine the best way to interpret and document the brick drains and other heritage items for future generations. We are considering the following heritage interpretation options:

  • Videography and photography
  • Displays in the Regional Museum or historic society
  • Artistic impressions and drawings
  • Documenting stories and folklore

Next steps

Construction work will pause during the holidays. Traffic management will remain in place for the safety of road users and the community. During the break, please contact 1800 983 657 to report any urgent issues.

Our last working day for the year will be Saturday 22 December 2018, and we will be back on site from Monday, 7 January 2019.

We would like to take the opportunity to wish you a very happy and safe holiday season.
