Our authorised contractor, Rob Carr, will soon commence work to upgrade wastewater services in Fremantle.
The work includes:
• Installation of 315 m of wastewater pipeline in the vicinity of Marmion Street, Stirling Highway and Wood Street
• 195 metres of existing wastewater pipeline to be decommissioned along Wood Street and Stirling Highway
Where is this happening?
Please refer to second tab above for a map of the work area.
Why is this taking place?
We are upgrading Fremantle’s wastewater system to improve wastewater services in the City of Fremantle and Town of East Fremantle.
When is this happening?
Work is expected to begin mid-March 2019 and is estimated to be completed by June 2019.
The majority of work will be completed Monday to Friday between 7am and 5pm as approved by your local council.
What impact will this have?
Nearby residents and businesses will notice more noise and activity along the pipeline.
In order to safely conduct this work, there will be traffic management in place during construction to direct road users and pedestrians safely around the work. Trenchless technology will be used to cross Marmion Street and Stirling Highway to minimise traffic impacts. The pipeline will be installed in the road along Wood Street, however access will remain open to traffic at all times.
As part of this work, some vegetation is required to be cleared along Stirling Highway to allow sufficient access to lay the pipe. We will work with the City of Fremantle to replace the trees after construction work is complete.
