Project goal:

We are refurbishing ageing wastewater pipes in Maddington to extend the life of this important infrastructure by at least 50 years.

Status:

In construction

Delivery Date:

Mid-April to September 2020

What's happening?

As part of our ongoing sewer relining project, we will be refurbishing ageing wastewater pipes in Maddington. This work is being undertaken by our authorised contractor, Interflow. Sewer relining uses trenchless technology to clean access chambers and refurbish existing wastewater pipes. Trenchless technology is less invasive and requires fewer trenches resulting in less disruption to the community.

Where is this happening?

We will work on the wastewater pipes in the following streets and laneways within Maddington:

Why is this work taking place?

Relining wastewater pipes is an important process to protect our wastewater systems and the health of the community and environment. This work will reduce the likelihood of blockages, prevent corrosion and extend the life of this important infrastructure by at least 50 years.

When is this happening?

Work will commence mid-April 2020 and will be complete by September 2020. During this period working hours will be Monday to Friday between 7:00 am and 5:00 pm. If we need to work outside these work hours, we will notify impacted businesses and residents.

To reduce the impact to the community sewer relining work is broken up into stages. Interflow may visit the area multiple times over a four week period, before moving along the wastewater route.

How will this impact the community?

Residents may notice more activity in the area, noise from generators, vehicles and a temporary odour. We work closely with the community throughout the duration of the project to minimise the inconvenience wherever possible.

Where required, traffic management will be in place to direct vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians safely around the work area.
