From the pipeline project manager

"The pipe installation has been completed. Work continues on some of the more detailed construction tasks, such as construction of concrete pits, minor electrical works, and as I am sure you would have noticed, further site clean-up / topsoil in the last week or two.

"Grassing will commence through the rural paddocks (Bottom Pinnacle and Tullys') in the next week. Due to some unforeseen hold ups, we are not yet ready to seed the reserve as further construction traffic is expected to complete the remain works. As a result of this, we expect grassing within the reserve is likely to commence mid – late June. I will keep you updated on this.

"Over the next fortnight we will commence relocation of the oversized rocks which remain stockpiled in the construction corridor (typically 500mm to 1m in diameter). This will be moved outside the reserve as per the original construction plans. The location is shown on the map below.

"Over the next 4-5 weeks, most onsite works will be completed and then we will remove the site security fence as soon as it is safe to do so."

We should therefore see the Reserve starting to return to normal around the beginning of July.
