Fulton Hogan will be completing hydro excavation works along Maugers Drive from Port Hills Road to Scruttons Road.

Hydro Excavation is the science of digging with water. We'll be using high-pressure water and a powerful vacuum to remove soil. The soil will be transferred to a debris tank to keep mess to a minimum. This is a safe, non-destructive and accurate way to remove soil and locate underground utilities, such a pipes, electrical cables and phone lines.

Traffic will be limited to one lane with traffic control  in place. Access to properties will remain open but  slight delays maybe experienced. 

This work is expected to take approximately 10 days to complete.
