Works Update - 20 August 2015

AT THE COMMON

A replacement pump has been installed at the Oberon Common for the aeration of the Pond after the old pump motor was found to have burnt out.  We are also in the process of planning the removal of the woody weed and long grass from the top of the Common to commence in late August.  Next week we will replace a few sections of concrete footpath due to uneven surfaces from tree roots.

LOCAL INFRASTRUCTURE RENEWAL SCHEME (LIRS)

Last week we continued work on Baileys Lane making big improvements to the width of the road and road alignment.  We have also started work on Faugha Ballaugha Road, with a vast amount of tree removal and drainage improvement work on the O’Connell Road end.

STREET TREE PRUNING WORK & PLANTING

Our Parks and Gardens crews have been taking to the streets over the last three weeks, carrying out the Annual Pruning Program.  Laneways are also on the tidy up list, with trees and bushes overhanging fences.
