Pipes for Fremantle

Project goal:

Renew ageing water mains and storm water drainage in Fremantle to help secure the reliability of water to customers in Fremantle and the surrounding areas for decades to come.

Delivery date:

Late July 2019 to November 2019 and April/May 2020 to late 2020 (subject to change)

 

What's happening?

In 2019 and 2020 we will renew 3.2km of water main in Fremantle and replace storm water drainage pipes.

Where is this happening? 

Pipes for Fremantle work:

  • Essex Lane, between Collie Street and Essex Street
  • Essex Street, between Marine Terrace and South Terrace
  • High Street, between Little High Street and Market Street
  • Leake Street, between Pakenham Street and Queen Street
  • Marine Terrace, between Cliff Street and Suffolk Street, and Howard Street and Price Street
  • Nairn Street, between Pakenham Street and Market Street
  • Norfolk Street, between Marine Terrace and South Terrace 

Drainage work:

  • Phillimore Street
  • Cliff Street

Why is this work taking place?

This work is essential in order to maintain our older water mains and storm drainage, and to avoid future bursts and leaks.

Pop up information centre

The Pipes for Fremantle pop up information centre, located at 66 High Street Fremantle, will reopen shortly before construction begins in 2020. Members of 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 and businesses may have.
