Explosives required for rock blast

Construction crews working on the Melbourne to Geelong Pipeline will use explosives to break through a section of hard granite rock on Friday 18 November 2011.

Residents east of the You Yangs may hear a blast during the course of the day. We anticipate that just one blast will be required to loosen the rock and it will be over in a matter of seconds.

Control measures will be put in place to ensure the blast is conducted safely.

Motorists in the vicinity of Little River may experience delays of up to 15 minutes.
