Mac Point is a hive of activity at the moment with a range of physical works happening on site.



Demolition of the Searoad Shed

The former SeaRoad Shed is being demolished as we continue to prepare the site ready for permanent development. It is also the first stage of progressing physical remediation of site contamination in the south-west corner of the site.

The access road to the east of the SeaRoad Shed will remain open for the duration of the works, however there may be short road closure of up to 5 minutes if the crane is operating adjacent to the entry and exits. This will be managed by the contractor and traffic control personnel.

If you have any concerns during the works, please do not hesitate to contact Sean McArdle, Project Manager (MPDC) on 0457 097 782.





Rehabilitation works

Bulk earthworks are underway to level and make safe the construction site in the middle of Mac Point. Once complete this will enable the temporary fencing to be removed and make the site accessible and available for a range of activities.

The team are also undertaking rehabilitation works to the internal road on site.

AECOM will set up 3 to 4 bollards around each testing site to delineate a work zone for 45 to 75-minute intervals.

The collected groundwater (waste) from each location will be transferred into a storage drum in the fenced area across the road to the north of the Longhouse every 2-3 hours.

Altus Traffic Management will be engaged for 1.5 days while working on the 7 wells located on Evans Street.
