From Wednesday 8 December work on the pipeline will move to Burnham Road. The northbound lane of Burnham Road will be closed north of the Burnham School Road intersection for 100m. This closure will be removed from 23 December to 10 January.

From 10 January to 26 April Burnham Road the one-way system will extend to State Highway 1. During this time Burnham Road will only be open to southbound traffic. A detour will be in place for northbound traffic.

Around 10 kilometres of the 26.5 kilometre pipeline have been completed with the pipeline on track to be completed by August 2022. The project is part of the Council’s Long-Term Plan 2021-2031 and will allow Darfield and Kirwee to connect to the Pines Wastewater Treatment Plant.

It will allow new developments in Darfield and Kirwee and businesses on the main street to begin connecting to the Pines Wastewater Treatment Plant. The Council will hold further discussions with the wider Darfield and Kirwee community about
connecting to the pipeline in the future.
