Brilliant St Carpark

Council has received funding from the State Government to build a 46-space carpark in Brilliant Street. The location of the carpark is shown in the figure below. It is opposite St Joseph's Catholic Primary School and in between Happy Valley Kindergarten and Meals on Wheels.

To construct the new carpark, some existing infrastructure will need to be removed and relocated.

Toilet block

The existing toilet block will need to be demolished. A new toilet will be constructed behind Meals on Wheels, as shown in Figure 2 below.

A new toilet block has been ordered. The lead time on delivery and installation is approximately 3 months. The existing toilet block will be demolished by the end of February. Porta-a-loos will be installed as a temporary measure.

Water

The existing bore will need to be decommissioned, and the water tanks removed. These will be relocated behind Meals and Wheels, as shown in Figure 2. This work will not impact the usage of the grounds.

Lighting

To demolish the toilet and remove the existing tanks, bore and switchboard, the power will have to be disconnected. This will take place the week commencing 19 February.

A new switchboard will be constructed, in between the two existing picnic shelters. There will be minimal delay between disconnecting the power, carrying out new electrical works, and reconnecting power.

However, the lights to the oval will not be available for a two-week period from the time that the power is disconnected.

During this period, Council encourages people to utilise Sunset Oval, which has identical lighting for sporting and exercise purposes.

Carpark

Work is expected to begin on the construction of the carpark by end of February/beginning of March. This works will take approximately six weeks to complete. During that time pedestrians will have to use the footpath on the eastern (St Joseph's) side of Brilliant Street.

Construction traffic will be minimal and will enter and leave the site via Duchess Road, Twenty-third Avenue and Brilliant Street. There will be no construction vehicle movements during peak times of school pickup/drop-offs (7.30am-9am and 2.30pm-4pm).
