The modelling identified upgrades which can be seen in the attachment below with concept pipe alignments and sizes. For the Robert St drain there will be a need to finalise an alignment and obtain easements for any pipework installed.

You may see surveyors in the area throughout August 2011 and as the design progresses further consultation with affected (if any) property owners will take place.
