back to current projects

Project goal:

To improve the disposal of wastewater in west Busselton.

Status:

In construction

Delivery Date:

October 2019

What’s happening?

We are currently completing two projects in West Busselton – the Centurion Way wastewater pipeline and a new wastewater pump station in the Stonebridge Estate. Our authorised contractor CD Drilling has completed 100% of all pipe installation on the Centurion Way pipeline, with restoration work now being completed. See our Project updates tab for the latest news.

Leeuwin Civil, our authorised contractor on the new wastewater pumping station, has recently started work near Kookaburra Way, West Busselton. You will have received a notification if you live in the vicinity of this work.

Where is this happening?

The work on the Centurion Way project will install approximately 1.6 kilometres of wastewater pipeline along Melaleuca Drive, Fairway Drive, Edith Agnes Circle and Mary Elizabeth Ramble. The pipeline will cross the Broadwater Nature reserve (underground) and join the existing wastewater pipes on Centurion Way. Refer to the map below for the work area.

The work at the Stonebridge Estate includes construction of approximately 340m of below ground wastewater pipeline, work on the existing gravity sewer and a new wastewater pumpstation. The location of this work is shown on the below map.

When is this happening?

Work commenced in late April 2019 and will be completed by the beginning of 2020 on both projects. The majority of work will be completed Monday to Friday between 7am and 5pm. Some weekend and night work may be required, however we will notify affected residents closer to the time.

How will this impact the community?

Local residents in these areas should expect medium-level noise from trucks and an excavator laying pipework.

There will also be some low-level vibrations and dust present. We also request that road verges be kept clear over this period, closest to the road reserve along the pipeline route.

Throughout the duration of the work traffic management will be in place along the pipeline construction route and during deep excavation along Kookaburra Way.

Please be assured that any affected area will be reinstated as closely as possible to its condition prior to the work.

Project update - October 2019

The majority of the construction work is now complete, and the new pipeline is now in operation. Work continues at the Centurion Way pump station and along Queen Elizabeth Avenue.

Over the next couple of week’s restoration of roads, footpaths and verges will be completed.

If you are a resident in this area, please follow the traffic management signs and ensure you discuss any access requirements with the crew onsite. Contact details can be found under our Project details tab.

We thank the community for their patience and support while this work has been completed.
