Councillor wants work flexibility

IPSWICH CBD Councillor Andrew Antoniolli is asking for a bit of flexibility from both sides as negotiations between Bell St construction workers and inner-CBD residents continue.

Murphy's Pub resident Graham Jones chained himself to a concrete breaking machine after losing his patience with night-time work outside his bedroom.

The act of protest resulted in a brief halt to the $2.2 million beautification project, which has a deadline of mid-December.

Discussions are now under way between Ipswich City Council, the contractor and Murphy's Pub management to work out the best time to complete the remaining concrete sawing and jack-hammering work.

"The breaking up of the footpath is going to create a lot of noise but the remaining work will be relatively quiet," Cr Antoniolli said.

"We will ask the contractor to look at changing work practices so that it doesn't have as much of an impact on those residents."

Cutting work is likely to be moved to Sunday afternoons.

A time window for jack-hammering work was yet to be finalised, however a 6pm to 9pm timeslot is being considered.
