Project goal:

Construct new distribution main to improve the reliability of water supply for current and future developments in Wandi, within the City of Kwinana.

Status:

In construction

Delivery date:

Early spring 2020

What's happening?

We are installing a new 2.3 kilometre distribution main along Lyon Road, from Honeywood Avenue to Cassowary Chase, Wandi. The proposed water main will be below-ground and constructed using open trench excavation.

This new water main is part of our long term plan to ensure we can continue the water supply and meet increased water demand in the southern metropolitan area.

Please see below map of work area:

What are the impacts?

Residents will notice more activity in the area and noise as the construction work will involve road cutting, excavating and compacting. These activities are most noticeable at the start and finish of our work when we cut the road and excavate, and then when we backfill and compact to reinstate the road.

Traffic Management

Traffic management will be in place to safely direct vehicles and pedestrians around the work area. Some road and lane closures will be necessary in order to safely conduct this work.
Please remember to be mindful of increased activity in the area and drive safely.

Reinstatement

We are committed to ensuring that any area impacted by our work will be returned to as close to original condition as possible. We are working closely with the City of Kwinana and residents to ensure all reinstatements are carried out to an acceptable and high standard. If any trees, shrubs, lawn driveways or paving needs to be removed, they will be replaced and the area restored.

When is this happening?

We anticipate the work to take approximately four months to complete with a completion date expected for early spring 2020.

During this period our contractor, Rob Carr, will work between Monday to Saturday, 7:00 am to 6:00 pm.

If we need to work outside these work hours we will notify impacted residents.
