Killard Excavation Pty Ltd knows that road works in residential areas can cause some disruptions, and we make every effort to minimise those disruptions for the public. We provide notification well in advance of the start of works so that residents are prepared for our arrival. In addition, we are constantly working at ways to minimise the period of time we are at the work site and are thorough in our clean up afterwards so that local neighbourhoods are back to normal as quickly as possible.
