• Water Corporation to upgrade wastewater system in Spalding
  • $2.3 million project will cater for growth in the area

Water Minister Mia Davies today announced the State Government would begin a project to replace 3.2 kilometres of wastewater main in Spalding, in mid-November. 

Ms Davies said the $2.3 million project would cater for growth in the area.

"The Water Corporation will carry out the project in two stages. The first stage of construction will begin at the existing Broome Street pump station and continue along Houston and Crawford streets," she said.

"The second stage will take place at the intersection of Webberton Road and Anderson Street and will continue south along the Webberton Road future extension.

"This project will ensure the area has the necessary infrastructure to grow and develop in future."  

The Minister said work would be carried out within existing road reserves and would also take place along the future road reserve earmarked for the extension of Webberton Road.

"Traffic management will be in place and access to Houston and Crawford streets will be available for local road users," she said.

"Local residents will be contacted when their driveways need to be temporarily blocked.

"I thank the community and road users for their patience while the Water Corporation undertakes this essential work."
