Works are progressing on the construction of a new 8.1km sewer rising main in Rockbank, part of Western Water's capital investment program.
The new sewer main will transfer sewage from Western Water’s new sewer pump station in Rockbank to the Melton Recycled Water Plant for treatment.
Western Water commenced construction of this essential infrastructure project in January 2017 in preparation for the rapid population growth expected in the area.
Rockbank, near the Western Freeway between Caroline Springs and Melton, is projected to be home to 75,000 residents in the next 20 years.
Workers are laying sewer pipes on the north side of Greigs Road, the Greigs/Leakes Road intersection and Troups Road North in April and May.
To accommodate this work, road closures will be in effect in the local area. Signs advising of the closures, and showing detours, will be in place so road users are advised to take note of changes in traffic conditions.
For more on the closures, visit the Rockbank sewer rising main project page.
