Blair Street wastewater main replacement


back to current projects

Project goal:

Renew the water main on Blair Street to improve the security and reliability of Bunbury's water supply


In construction

Delivery Date:

April - October 2017

We're replacing a section of wastewater pipeline along Blair Street, between Hayes Street and Strickland Street, Bunbury. The replacement of the 900 m section of pipeline will improve Bunbury’s wastewater system and reduce the potential for breaks. Please see the map provided for further details of the work.

Work began at the beginning of April 2017 and is due for completion in November 2017. Most of the work has been completed within the verge at the roadside, using a tunnel boring machine to minimise disruption.

Construction impacts

Traffic management will be required at the intersection of Hayes Street and Blair St for 6 hours in early November. The intersection will be closed to allow for necessary work in the east bound lane of Hayes Street. We will undertake this work outside of peak hour traffic to ensure disruption is minimised and local businesses and residents will be notified at least 24 hours in advance.

We thank the community for their understanding while this essential work takes place.
