Expected Completion Date:  August 2018 

Unfortunately, the project is behind the original schedule and we now expect the project to be delivered August-2018.  The delays are due to unexpected complications in the completion of  water, gas, electricity and drainage adjustments and we’ve been working closely with the service providers to resolve them and ensure the project is delivered safely and meets the requirements of all stakeholders.

Council apologises for the inconvenience caused and thank the wider community for its patience while we deliver this important piece of infrastructure for Wyndham residents.
