The western end of Dixon St (from the intersection at Willis St) until MacDonald Cres is closed until further notice. Access to MacDonald Cres via The Terrace is still available.

As part of our works to repair the wastewater leak, our team came across a collapsed section of pipe which requires urgent repair. This resulted in immediate road closure, meaning we couldn't advise the public earlier.

As a part of this urgent work, a pumping truck will be on site. We will aim to keep noise down, however we expect the truck to run until 7pm.

We are working with affected residents and businesses to keep them updated on any increased noise.

We will provide an update tomorrow on the status of the road closure.
