Attention motorists and cyclists, Eastern Trenchless, on behalf of Halifax Water, will be undertaking wastewater system maintenance using innovative cure-in-place-pipe (CIPP) trenchless lining technology.  

Work will take place Saturday, March 28th - Monday, April 13th. Typical work hours will be 7:00 AM – 7:00 PM, Monday to Friday, with extended evening hours as required.

Bayers Road will maintain two open inbound lanes from 7:00 AM - 9:00 AM. Connaught Avenue will maintain two open outbound lanes from 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM. There will be rolling lane drops on sections of Bayers Road and Connaught Avenue (see attached work zone map). Pedestrian traffic will not be impacted.

Innovative CIPP lining involves reinforcing the inside of ageing underground pipes using a fabric liner saturated with a resin, which is then cured using Ultra Violet light. CIPP technology significantly reduces work duration and is less disruptive to traffic, compared to traditional open-trench excavations for pipe replacement work.

Motorists should expect delays and use alternate routes. Motorists are also reminded that speed fines double in work zones.

There will be no loss of water, wastewater, or stormwater services.
