Target Carpark drainage works

Over September, Council is planning to commence an upgrade to the Lachlan Hotel and Target carpark stormwater drainage and pavement. The work will be completed in three stages to minimise inconvenience to the public and businesses. Various areas will be closed to the public during the three stormwater drainage stages as shown in the attached plan.

Work to establish plant and equipment to the site will commence Monday 31 August 2020. Stage one is to commence Tuesday 8 September with stage two to commence Tuesday 15 September and stage three to commence Tuesday 6 October - these dates are an estimate and may change.

Access from Rowston Lane through to the Target carpark will not be possible during the period of Tuesday 15 September to Saturday 3 October. Access to the Target carpark will be via Brisbane Street.

It is intended that pedestrian access through the Lachlan Hotel Laneway will be open as soon as possible after completion of drainage stage one. There is likely to be increased construction noise, construction vehicle movement and dust during the works. Council apologises for these impacts. For more information, please contact Infrastructure and Operations on 6340 2070.
