Boneo Reserve Drainage

I am excited to announce that works will commence to alleviate the flooding and drainage issues around the school. There will be contractors on site conducting ground investigation works from the 5th of February to 23rd of February 2024 at various locations of the Boneo Reserve. Please see the image showing the location in purple boxes. This will be conducted during normal working hours from 8:00am to 4:00pm. There will be no disruptions to school drop offs and school pickups. After the end of each day the areas in purple will be fenced off.


Drainage works are anticipated to commence on the 26th of February 2024 and be completed by 15th April 2024. There will be heavy machinery on site for the installation of the drainage pipeline, however this will be conducted during the first week of works (26th February – 01st March 2024). The works will be conducted from 8:00am to 4:00pm with traffic management on site to safely divert traffic from the area. I have been informed that there will be no disruptions to normal school activities and no disruptions to school drop offs and pickups.
