Pavement and soil samples will be collected from Liebig and Koroit streets from November 21 to 23.

The work is part of preliminary investigations ahead of the commencement of work on the Liebig Streetscape Plan, for which Council is seeking external government funding.

“Contractors will be taking 22 samples across Liebig and Koroit streets,” Manager City Renewal Tanya Egan said.

Sampling will be done in pairs at 11 sites with a sample taken from a parking bay and one from the traffic lane.

The work is being scheduled to minimise disruption to traffic and retail activity.

“Where we can we’ll do the work over weekends and outside busy trading times,” Ms Egan said.

“The samples will be tested in a laboratory.

“What we find out from the geological surveying will influence the pavement of the traffic and parking lanes when we deliver the streetscape plan.

“It’s anticipated that contractors will be at each site for about an hour. Traffic will be managed around the survey sites with no road closures.

“The surveys will not involve taking samples from footpaths and pedestrian access to shops will be maintained at all times.

“Contractors will require a few car parking spaces while they carry out the work. We have endeavoured to schedule the work so that disruption is minimised.”

Next week, November 23 to 27, surveyors will also be visible in and around Liebig and Koroit streets taking measurements and photographs.

“This surveying also forms part of the work for the Liebig Streetscape Plan,” Ms Egan said.

“It’s all about building a 21st century city centre.”
