What is happening?
Commencing 7 January 2019, our authorised contractor, DM Civil, will begin work to upgrade water services in the Shire of Serpentine and Jarrahdale. Refer to the second tab above for a map of the work area.
The work includes installation of approximately 1.5 kilometres of water main along Abernethy Road, Byford and has been coordinated with the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale’s plans to upgrade the area. Work is estimated to be completed by the end of February 2019.
The majority of work will be completed Monday to Friday between 7am and 5pm.
What are the impacts?
Nearby residents and businesses will notice more noise and activity along the pipeline. Construction will involve road cutting, excavating and compacting.
There will be traffic management in place during construction to direct road users and pedestrians safely around the work. A small section of Abernethy Road will be reduced to one lane in January, as we install the pipe across the road.
The pipeline will be installed in the verge. We will liaise with you directly if your access will be affected.
