Utilities work on Maggie takes a holiday
A TEMPORARY holidayseason halt will be called to the construction of the joint utilities corridor being built between Arcadia and Nelly Bay on Magnetic Island.
The corridor, a partnership between the Townsville City Council, NQ Water and Ergon Energy, when completed will carry a water pipeline, power conduits and a Citiwater wastewater main.
Work on the $4.3 million project stopped yesterday and will be resumed on January 8.
City Infrastructure Committee chairman David Mather said residents may be assured crews had made the area safe.
The utilities corridor is planned to be completed in February.
