Upcoming retaining wall repair work on Dyers Pass Road, Governors Bay

Fletcher (SCIRT) will be undertaking work on three retaining walls on Dyers Pass Road (from the Governors Bay Road intersection, running for nearly 400 meters north/east).
This work is scheduled to be underway late February/ Early March 2015, narrowing the road to one lane. Two-way traffic will be maintained via a manual stop/go system while preliminary work is underway (from the week beginning 23 February 2015) and then via temporary traffic lights (from the week beginning 2 March 2015) for the duration of the work.
This work will take approximately six months to complete.  Further details here...

Beware of Scammers in Diamond Harbour

Over the last few weeks some elderly residents have again been the target of scammers offering to do gardening, trimming etc - doing a poor job, demanding an exorbitant price above that quoted and behaving in an intimidating manner.

They are described as 2 men (sometimes accompanied by a woman) possibly Polynesian and seen travelling in a dark coloured vehicle.

If they come to your house do not let them in. Anyone with any further information about them is asked to contact the Police on 363 7400 or DH Neighbourhood Support on 329 3032.
Please pass this warning on to your neighbours.
