Pipes for Perth information shop ‘pops up’ on Beaufort Street

16/04/2019

A pop up information shop has opened on Beaufort Street for interested locals to visit to find out more about Water Corporation’s Pipes for Perth program.

 

Last month, Water Corporation started work to replace two kilometres of 100-year-old water main on Beaufort Street, between Roe Street and Chelmsford Road, in Northbridge and Highgate as part of the program.

 

Located at 497 Beaufort Street, Water Corporation spokesperson Clare Lugar encouraged local businesses, residents and visitors to the popular strip to drop in for a chat.

 

“The pop up information shop will help us engage more closely with the local community and make us easily accessible to those who are impacted by the essential work,” Ms Lugar said.

 

“Members from the project team will be on hand at the shop to discuss the project in detail, answer questions and listen to any concerns the local community might have.”

 

The pop-up shop officially opened at the weekend (April 13 and 14) and will be open each week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 10am and 2pm.

 

The next section of pipe to be replaced between Vincent Street and Chelmsford Road started the evening of April 12, and will continue until Monday, April 29.

 

To complete the work sooner and reduce impact to the local community, this work will be carried out 24 hours, seven days a week; excluding April 19 - 21 over Easter, and ANZAC Day.

Since 2016, the Pipes for Perth program has replaced more than 120 kilometres of water mains across metropolitan Perth.
