Sewer works in your area from September 2022


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 the sewage network flowing.

With some upcoming works in Colchester Road, Henry Wilson Drive and Boneo Road Service Road, Rosebud you might see us or our delivery partner ZJW (Zinfra, Jaydo, WSP, Joint Venture) around. Here’s what to expect while we get the job done.

What we're doing

After finishing investigative works and finalising our design, we're returning to start construction on the sewer upgrade in Colchester Road, Henry Wilson Drive and the Boneo Service Road.

We’ll also be decomissioning and removing the existing sewer at the end of Jennings Court.

When it's happening

These works are now complete and we’re leaving the area. You might have seen us in the area recently as we’ve been delivering construction of the Colchester Sewer Upgrade Project at Colchester Road, Henry Wilson Drive, Jennings Court and Boneo Road Service Road, Rosebud. Since completing construction we’ve been undertaking reinstatement works to all areas impacted by the works. 

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:

  • Change in normal traffic flow and short-term lane closures on Colchester Road, Henry Wilson Drive, Boneo Road and Boneo Road Service Road (please refer to map below).
  • Reduced speed limits will be in place.
  • More trucks on the streets around you.
  • Fewer carparks on some streets.
  • Noise from machinery and drilling rigs, like beepers when trucks reverse.
  • Our traffic management team will be around to make sure people, bikes and cars can move around safely.

Don't miss these details

We’re working with ZJW to help us.

During the works ZJW will have a site compound near the works zone. This location will be approved by council and will be secure and adhere to strict safety requirements.

You shouldn’t notice any change to your water or sewer services while we work. When we’ve finished the job, we’ll leave things how we found them and make sure we return any areas we’ve impacted as close as possible to their original condition.
