Currans Hill - project update and site demobilisation

From now through to mid December the site will be demobilised in preparation for the commissioning of the site i.e. filling the reservoir. Residents in the area may notice an increase in activity on and around the site during this period. We will continue to let you know if any of this work will have an impact on residents. In addition, we will also contact residents directly who have requested Sydney Water do so regarding upcoming works.

Upcoming work

As we enter the final stages of the works on the new reservoir in Currans Hill there will be an increase in construction traffic coming in and out of the site. Traffic will continue to use the heavy vehicle route approved by Camden Council, via Turner Road, Ascot Drive and Manooka Road (refer map below).

This work will involve:

  • The demobilisation and removal of the large crane (affectionately named “Pebbles” by the local pre-school earlier this year) from the site. Due to the size of the crane a large float is required for its transport, this will enter the housing estate from Turner Road during day time hours. Residents can expect some short-term local road closures and traffic provisions in place along the route shown in the below image. We request that any traffic control measures e.g. cones, signs etc. are not moved during this period.
  • Construction of the permanent access stair tower will commence late October and painting of the reservoir is ongoing through to late November, which may increase traffic volumes in the area.
  • The final stages of structure testing will commence 1st November and will last approximately six weeks. Residents may notice these works occurring between 6:00pm and 10:00pm. However, this is considered low impact work with no use of heavy plant or equipment. We expect no disturbance to local residents,

Our standard work hours

  • 7:00am to 6:00pm Monday to Friday
  • 8:00am to 5:00pm Saturday
