Over the coming weeks there will activities conducted as part of the Snowy 2.0 feasibility study adjacent to the Snowy Mountains Highway, about 12km north of Kiandra.
This work includes preparing for and undertaking investigative geotechnical drilling and you may see some trucks in and around the area.
At times there will be work on both sides of the highway and activity will be underway both during the day and at night.
The work involves drilling small core holes so we can better understand the rock underneath and inform the feasibility study. Approvals for the work was provided by National Parks and Wildlife Services after Snowy Hydro conducted a thorough environmental assessment.
Snowy Hydro takes safety very seriously and drivers are asked to exercise caution in the area. A traffic management plan will also be in place although we expect the any impacts on traffic to be minimal.
