Currans Hill - noise and vibration activities to begin Tuesday 3 May 2022, weather permitting
As part of the Prospect to Macarthur (ProMac) project we are replacing the reservoir in Currans Hill so that it can reliably supply water to the community for decades to come.
We are continuing to use a crane to dismantle the reservoir wall panels. To dismantle the final row of panels at the base of the reservoir, we need to remove the grout seal. We plan to undertake this work using an excavator and small hammer attachment from Tuesday 3 May 2022. This activity will take up to four shifts to complete, weather permitting.
The grout is embedded in a channel in the concrete foundation around the outside of the tank. To give residents respite from noise and vibration, jack hammering works will occur in three-hour blocks, with one hour breaks in between.
This work will involve:
- using a 5 tonne excavator with a small cylindrical hammer attachment to break away grout from concrete using elevated work platforms to dismantle the tank in sections
- lifting sections of panels with the use of a crane
- transporting components that can’t be re-used or recycled offsite by truck.
Our work hours
- 7 am to 6 pm Monday to Friday
- 8 am to 1 pm Saturday.
