Project snapshot

Town(s): Diggers Rest, 

Status: Complete

Cost: $600,000

Expected Completion Date: Early 2017


This essential drinking water project is part of our preparation for rapid residential development and population growth in Diggers Rest.

Why is this project needed?

We’re installing a new water main to ensure we can provide quality drinking water to the rapidly growing Diggers Rest community.

What will the works involve?

We’ll excavate a trench and install 795 metres of pipeline along the Calder Freeway sound wall on Mountview Drive, alongside Vineyard Road and down Houdini Drive.

Once the new main is connected to the existing water network, landscaped areas and the roadside will be reinstated to their original condition.

When will the works take place?

Our contractor is on site in early-September. Weather permitting, we expect to finish the project in early 2017.

Western Water appreciates your cooperation during this essential work.

Working hours?

Our working hours are 7.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday. Weekend work may be required at times but we will notify residents in advance.

What impacts can I expect during the works?

  • Traffic – you may notice increased traffic along your street as our contractor goes about their work. For your safety, and that of our team, traffic management will be in place as required.
  • Water supply – there will likely be a short interruption to the water supply. We’ll notify you in advance if the interruption relates to your property
