In January 2018, Water Corporation began work to upgrade the wastewater infrastructure in Two Rocks and Yanchep.
This work includes the construction of:
- 4.2 km of wastewater main along Two Rocks Road in Two Rocks;
- 1 km of wastewater main along Lisford Avenue in Two Rocks;
- 1 km of wastewater main along the extension of Marmion Avenue in Yanchep;
- new below ground wastewater pump station on Charnwood Reserve; and an
- upgrade of the existing Abrolhos Close Wastewater Pump Station.
Our authorised contractor is RCR Water. Their site office is located on Charnwood Reserve.
We are working with the City of Wanneroo to minimise impacts on the community as much as possible and now expect to complete the upgrade work in late 2018.
What are the community impacts?
Progress so far
Since work began in January 2018, approximately 6.25 kilometres of wastewater pipeline has been installed in Two Rocks and Yanchep, with approximately 50 metres of pipeline remaining.
The new below ground wastewater pump station on Charnwood Reserve is almost complete, while upgrade of the existing Abrolhos Close Wastewater Pump Station is now complete with driveway reinstatement remaining.
We are currently installing the last section of pipe near the intersection of Lisford Ave and Sovereign Drive.
Work near Lisford Avenue and Sovereign Drive intersection
Work began in early August to install the last section of wastewater pipeline near the Lisford Avenue and Sovereign Drive intersection in Two Rocks.
To complete this work, we are required to insert large sheet piles into the excavated area to provide necessary support to the trench.
We will continue to work between 7.00 am and 5.00 pm, from Monday to Friday as approved by the City of Wanneroo and expect to complete this section of work by mid- February.
During this time, residents and shopping centre visitors may notice more noise, vibration and vehicles in the area, however we will do all we can to minimise impact on the community as much as possible.
While traffic management will be in place near the intersection, access to the Two Rocks Shopping Centre and Yanchep Public Library will not be restricted.
Residents and commuters will notice construction at the intersection of Lisford Avenue and Sovereign Drive.
Traffic management will be in place to direct vehicles and pedestrians safely around the work area. Two Rocks Road will remain open to traffic at all times.
Work over Christmas
The site will be closed from the close of business on 21 December 2018 and will resume on Monday 7 January. During this time, all traffic management will be cleared.
We will not require access to private property during this work.
To build the new wastewater pump station, 4 trees (2 peppermint trees and 2 coastal moort trees) have been removed on Charnwood Reserve. As agreed with the City of Wanneroo, these trees will be replaced with 12 smaller trees (6 peppermint trees and 6 coastal moort trees) once the pump station has been completed.
The Bush Forever site along Two Rocks Road will not be impacted during this work. Some trees along the western side of Two Rocks Road reserve have also been removed to install the new wastewater main and we will work with the City of Wanneroo to replace the trees after construction work is complete.
