Works in your area

You might not notice a lot of the work we do because most of it is beneath your feet. Every day, we’re maintaining and upgrading the pipes and pumps that keep water flowing. With some ongoing works in Ti Tree Creek and Clyde Road, Berwick you might see us or our contractor Fulton Hogan Delplant Beca Joint Venture (FHDB) around.

Here’s what to expect while we get the job done.

What we're doing

This project is to install a new sewer pipe in Berwick to increase the reliability of the network and reduce the risk of spills. 

We're working with FHDB to help us.

There will be intermittent closure of shared user paths throughout Berwick Springs Reserve. Detours will be in place.

When it's happening

We apologise for the unexpected project delays in some areas. Below is a list of current works.

The Esplanade - We're planning to finish minor works and leave the area soon. Our temporary fencing will remain on site until this time. We'll be in touch with any affected residents before works start.

Grices Road and Recreational Reserve  - Due to technical and permit reasons, works have been delayed. We'll be in touch prior to starting works again. 

You can expect us to work Monday to Friday between 7 am and 6 pm. On the odd occasion, we may need to work at other times for safety or technical reasons.

What might impact you

We’ll do our best to keep impacts to a minimum, however these are the kinds of things you might notice while we work:

  • More trucks in the area.
  • Noise from machinery, like beepers when trucks reverse.
  • A change in normal traffic flow on local streets.
  • Temporary fencing around sections of pathways.
  • Sections of the pathways will be closed as we re-lay the footpaths. Pedestrian and cyclist detours will be in place. 
  • Our traffic management team will be around to make sure people, bikes and cars can move around safely.

Don't miss these details

You shouldn’t notice any change to your water or sewer services while we work.

FHDB will have a temporary site compound for the duration of the works.

When we’ve finished the job, we’ll leave things how we found them and return any areas we’ve impacted as close as possible to their original condition.
