PUBLIC NOTICE: UPGRADING OF PARKDENE WATER RETICULATION NETWORK
The upgrading of the water reticulation network in Parkdene will have an impact on
the residents and road users during the construction period from February 2024 to
September 2024. The estimated construction duration is 8 months.
The work consists of installing approximately 3800m of uPVC Class 16 water
reticulation pipes varying in size from 75mm to 160mm, installing ERF connections,
isolation valves, fire hydrants, as well as the installation of a pressure-reducing valve
and bulk water meter, and the associated reinstatement.
February 2024 to September 2024.
Interruptions can be expected during the connection to the existing reticulation,
commissioning, re-connection, and installation of new smart water meters. Advance
notification of planned temporary disruptions will be sent out via social media.
Working hours will be from 07h00 to 17h00 Mondays to Fridays.
The intended construction works will take place mainly in the road reserves with some
open trench road crossings planned and work on properties during water meter
connections and commissioning. The works will impact on residents, pedestrians,
scholars, runners, cyclists, and road users. It is, however, important for the public to
take notice of the intended works since there will be excavations and work done on
existing water infrastructure. The work area will be fully closed to the public. No
pedestrians, scholars, runners, cyclists or other may access the construction area
throughout the duration of the construction period. Access to properties will be
managed between the contractor and the property occupants.
ACCESS TO SITE:
Access to the site will be strictly controlled. No member of the public will be allowed
access to the construction area, in terms of the Occupational Health and Safety Act.
