Long Pocket excavation works

18 Apr 2018

To continue improving service and infrastructure on the Long Pocket Campus, Property and Facilities are moving forward with plans to extend chilled water lines from Tuckeroo Building (1018A) to Foxtail Building (1019).


  • Start: 15 July 2018
  • Finish: 1 September 2018

Work details

This work will involve trenching and laying pipes across Discovery Drive, through the carpark and road leading to Foxtail. This will cause some traffic disruption on Discovery Drive and the closure of the road and carparks leading to the loading docks of Foxtail for the duration of these works.

Property and Facilities are going to be working closely with the contractor to ensure traffic disruptions and car park closures are kept to a minimum. Along with the road closures there will be some noisy works in relation to digging.

This project is expected to take approximately 10 weeks with traffic disruptions on Discovery Drive expected to take no longer than 2 weeks. Alternative traffic flow arrangements will be advised closer to the project commencement. This project is expected to start in mid-July and additional information will be provided closer to when works commence.
