Mareeba Shire Council would like to inform residents that upgrade works to the Kuranda Barang Street Water Main Reticulation Network are planned to start in mid-October. Works are expected to continue until March 2022.
Mareeba Shire Council will have a contractor working on the new water main in between Rob Veivers Drive and Arara Street.
The 2021-2022 capital works program includes an allocation to replace the failed existing water main on Barang St to maintain ongoing water supply for properties.
This section of water main was identified for replacement following numerous main breaks occurring in the past few years. The work involves the installation of a new water main and service connections, valving and hydrants. The area of disturbance will be kept to a minimum by locating the new pipe underneath road surfaces and by boring underground.
Please be advised that there will be changed traffic conditions to Barang Street during these works.
Council asks that all road users drive to conditions, heed traffic management directions and value the safety of our workers.
Mareeba Shire Council appreciates your patience while the water main is upgraded.
For further information, please phone Council on 1300 308 461.
