The tender for the Riverside Olympic Soccer Ground Lighting Project was awarded to Industrial Fire and Electrical at our August 2020 Council Meeting and work is now underway.

Stormwater Pipe Replacement
The stormwater pipe at 4422 West Tamar Highway, Beauty Point is being replaced.

Sewage Intrusion Program
West Tamar Council and City of Launceston are participating in a program funded by NRM North as part of the Launceston City Deal to improve the health of the Tamar Estuary.

The primary objective is to identify instances of sewage in the urban stormwater systems. Paneltec, as authorised officers of the West Tamar Council, undertook inspections of stormwater systems throughout Trevallyn and Riverside from July until November 2019. They then moved into Newstead, Punchbowl and Mowbray Catchments, before returning to north Riverside in the West Tamar in April 2020. They have since moved onto Youngtown, Newnham and Ravenswood, and are expected to again return to the West Tamar Municipality as the program continues. Inspections will only be undertaken on public property due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Any enquires, please contact Council’s Engineer on 03 6323 9300.
