The Suburban Land Agency will be commencing site investigation works including geotechnical and contamination testing, at the Canberra Brickworks Precinct. Works are expected to commence late August 2016 and will be completed by mid September 2016, weather permitting.

The testing will provide a better understanding of the existing ground conditions, with a focus on areas that were not previously tested.

A mini-excavator will be creating test-pits / boreholes within the site. All test-pits and boreholes will be backfilled after the testing has been completed. During fieldwork, cones or barriers will be placed around each of the test locations to protect passing pedestrians while the mini-excavator is in operation.

The LDA will work closely with WorkSafe ACT and the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA) to ensure environmental control measures are adhered to.
