sewerproject 5The noise, dust and disruption caused by the Urban Utilities sewer mains project at the corner of Melbourne and Mollison Streets is coming to an end, according to the latest epistle from their Communications department.

Here it is:

With one week to go until the G20 and the end of our major works, we thought we’d better give you a helicopter view of Operation ‘Mollison Makeover’.

Unlike the G20, our security fences are coming down and we are pleased to have the street and footpath reopened in front of the shopping centre. (see photos)

With Colour Me Brisbane and the G20 Cultural celebrations in full swing, last night we finished vacuuming and carried out the final flush for our nightly ‘Nightmare on Boundary Street Intersection’ light show and street parade. Thank you so much for all your help with this major production, especially the team at West End Central Apartments and residents living across the road from there.

We are currently policing progress on how mopping up operations are going for the final precinct cleanup in front of 26&30 Mollison Street to avoid any local protest action from the peaceful saints who have lived among the works.

We are confident the area will scrub up ok once our mud army (who will be working there again tomorrow) fills in the manhole, levels the street, puts the kerb back, polishes the street and brushes away that dustpan before the G20 Summit opens.

Dignitaries will also enjoy a greener approach to the gateway to Mollison Street at the Montague Road end with the fences coming down and new turf to be laid in the vacant block near the cement factory.

Thank you for being such great G20 partners!sewerproject 1
