The Water Corporation has completed a $3.5 million project to replace 2.5 kilometres of wastewater main in Albany.

Water Minister Mia Davies said the wastewater main was constructed along Parkes Street and Warrangoo, Collingwood and Brewster roads.

"The 2.5km of wastewater main started at the wastewater pump station on Warrangoo Road and was connected to a wastewater main on Lower King Road," Ms Davies said.

"This Liberal National Government project improves the reliability of the main and caters for growth in the area."

The Minister thanked locals for their patience during construction. 

"I thank the community and road users for their patience and co-operation while the corporation completed this essential work," she said.
