The City of Launceston will be completing stormwater main renewal works on McKellar Road, scheduled to commence on Monday 24 June 2024.

The work will extend from 38 McKellar Road, cross the road, and continue through the kerb/parking area to 29 McKellar Road. This project will involve excavation and installation of new stormwater pipes to replace the aging infrastructure. The works will occur in the Council road reserve and not on private property.

This renewal is required to provide continued delivery of the stormwater service and prevent future damage and risks to the roadway, environment and community.

To facilitate these works, a road closure on McKellar Road is scheduled from 7am Monday 24 June through to 5pm Wednesday 26 June, while trenching works across the roadway are completed. The road will remain closed of a night with a fenced section around the open trench.

Local property access to McKellar Road and nearby streets will be maintained throughout the project. Residents and local businesses will still be able to reach their properties during the 3-day road closure, for properties on the lower half of McKellar Road, access will be via Amy Road, while properties on the upper half will need to use Talbot Road.

The entire project is expected to be completed over an 8-week period. Throughout this time, the parking bays outside 31 and 33 McKellar Road will be unavailable. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and request residents use alternative parking locations during the construction period.

We appreciate the community's cooperation and understanding while we complete this important project.
