Rail culvert works, Gilgandra

The next phase of the Gilgandra Shire Council Bimbimbie Wetlands works involves the installation of a culvert under the railway line on the Country Regional Network (CRN).

John Holland Rail (JHR) have been engaged as the rail infrastructure contractor to complete this work.


What do the works involve?

The works involve installation of a culvert under the railway line between Railway Street and Hargraves Lane to divert water from the adjacent catchment to the Castlereagh River.


When will work commence?

Construction crews will be onsite from 3 – 11 April 2018, working from 6:30am – 5:00pm each day. 

Work outside of standard working hours (weekend works) is required to minimise the duration of the works for the local community and the disruption to the rail network.


How will I be affected?

The construction of the culvert is close to your home and during the works period you may hear construction noise during site operations and see some extra vehicles and heavy machinery movements in the area. We will endeavour to minimise the impact to the community wherever possible, during the works.
