Project goal:

To improve the disposal of wastewater in the City of Wanneroo

Status:

In construction

Delivery Date:

June 2021

What's happening?

We are upgrading important infrastructure in Mindarie to improve the disposal of wastewater in the City of Wanneroo.

The work includes:

  • Upgrades to the Rosslare Promenade pumping station
  • Construction of 1.4km of underground wastewater pipeline along Rosslare Promenade, Fairport Vista and Rochester Drive

Current progress

Construction of the 1.4km wastewater pipeline along Rosslare Promenade, Fairport Vista and Rochester Drive is now complete. Our authorised contractor, Rob Carr, will soon return to complete upgrades to the wastewater pump station.

As part of our quality assurance process, we will be testing the 1.4km wastewater pipeline that was constructed late last year. We will also be testing valves at various points along the pipeline route, with traffic management in place as required.

When is this taking place?

Work to upgrade the wastewater pump station is expected to begin in mid-March 2021 and continue for approximately three months. All site work is expected to be completed by June 2021. 

The majority of work will be completed Monday to Friday between 7am and 5pm, with Saturday work between 9am and 5pm. If required, the contractor may work until 7pm to make the work area safe at the end of the shift, as approved by the City of Wanneroo. If planned night work or weekend work is required, we will provide adequate notice.

How will this impact the community?

A section of the car park opposite Rosslare Park will be unavailable during construction. This is to allow a work safe area to complete the upgrades. 

Traffic management will be in place to direct pedestrians and road users around the work. There will be an increase in noise and activity during construction, however we will do our best to mitigate the impacts and will be able to provide further details on this as work progresses. 

Reinstatements 

The area of grass that was disturbed next to the pump station site will be reseeded once the pump station upgrades are complete in June 2021. Reseeding during the cooler months will allow the lawn to re-establish successfully.
