What did this project involve?

  • Replacement of an old water main with 350 metres of new 100mm pipe.
  • Construction was mainly in the road pavement.

Why is this project needed?

  • Replacing the existing water main with a new pipe improves service reliability and lessens the risk of leaks and bursts.
  • It reduces maintenance and repair costs to the water pipe network.
  • Construction commenced late October 2018 and was completed late December 2018.

Was the water supply impacted?

To minimise disruption to the water supply, properties were supplied with a temporary water service for a short period of time. The contractor, DKM Utility Services, contacted property owners and tenants to arrange a suitable time to transfer their service.
