ISLAND ROADWORKS –
Pino and the crew have been on the Island for a couple of weeks
cleaning drains/pits, patching roads with cold mix and
maintaining/creating water bars.
Sadly, they must leave to carry out mainland work, but SIRA is
negotiating to have quarterly maintenance implemented from now
on. There are also upcoming scheduled Capital Works in the new
financial year at the intersection of Cecil Street and Richard Road to
improve drainage in that area.
The intersection of Hilda Avenue and Thompson Street has had some
surface maintenance using cold mix. The longevity of this surface
is dependent on vehicles not driving on it for a few days and also
PLEASE DRIVE UP HILDA AVENUE AND DOWN THOMPSON STREET NOT THE OTHER
WAY! This road is not in great shape and, until it can be
scheduled for a complete resurface, this one-way access should be
maintained to avoid further deterioration and any subsequent road
closure. The wheels of vehicles spinning on the road as they get
traction up the hill from Thompson Street is what creates further
Council has advised that the new Waste Calendars are due to be
delivered at the beginning of July. These will be left at all
wharves for residents to collect and SIRA will have some spares on hand.

The dates for collections
are as follows:
BULKY GOOD CLEAN UP – WEEK COMMENCING SEPTEMBER 2nd
GARDEN ORGANICS – WEEK COMMENCING SEPTEMBER 30th
Those residents who have material out on the road verge, PLEASE remove
onto your property until collection time arrives to prevent the visual
pollution that it creates for everyone!! Material should only be
placed out the WEEK PRIOR to collection.
