AN UPGRADE to replace a section of the sewer main in Airlie Beach will begin soon. Construction of the main at Mazlin Hill, near Summit Avenue will involve drilling into the hill to replace a section of pipeline, improving the performance of the sewer system and reducing maintenance costs.
The upgrade is expected to be completed by mid-September 2017. The works will take place Monday to Saturday, between 6.30am and 6.30pm. Council says residents may notice some noise from on site machinery and traffic disruption but there will be no road closures during the works. GCE Contractors Pty Ltd, a specialist engineering company from Brisbane will carry out the upgrades.
