We constructed a new water main along Gisborne Road, Darley to ensure we can provide quality drinking water to the growing Bacchus Marsh community.
Expected Completion Date: Completed October 2017
What did the project involve?
Construction is now complete on a new water main on Gisborne Road, Darley, between Lerderderg-Gorge Road and our Bences Road tank site.
The work involved replacing approximately 3km of an old 80mm water main with a new 125mm pipe. The new main will improve service reliability and minimise the risk of bursts on this busy local road.
Construction involved a combination of open-cut trenching and boring underground to minimise the impact on native vegetation. It was completed ahead of schedule and with minimal disruption to traffic and local residents.
