Roe Street - Pipes for Perth

Project goal:

Renew the ageing water main along Roe Street to help secure the reliability of water to customers in Northbridge and the surrounding areas.

Delivery date:

October 2018 - September 2019


What's happening?

In October 2018 Civcon began work to replace 1.2 kilometers of ageing water main along Roe Street between Fitzgerald Street and Stirling Street.

This work is happening on both the north and south side of Roe Street depending on the position of services underground, connections, valves, tree roots and the bike path. To complete this complex work, the renewal has been separated into four stages. Including;

  • Fitzgerald to Lake – complete
  • Lake to William Street – May 2019 – August 2019 (Being carried out in conjunction with Western Power)
  • William to Beaufort – complete
  • Beaufort to Stirling – complete

Full reinstatement will take place from beginning of September to the end of September 2019.

Civcon are also required to excavate and lay the main across the road to connect the new water main to connections on the other side of the road. These cross-connections are happening at all the intersections, and along Roe Street where required.

Why is this taking place?

This work is being undertaken to renew the ageing water main along Roe Street. The water main is beginning to show signs of wear and tear. Replacing the water main will help futureproof Northbridge and Perth’s water supply for many decades to come.

When is this happening?

October 2018 – September 2019
