Works in your area starting early May 2020

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 and sewerage services flowing. With the installation of a recycled water main in the Cranbourne to Clyde area, you might see us or our contractor Zinfra, Jaydo, WSP Joint Venture (ZJW) around. 

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

What we're doing

This project is to intall 3 km of recycled water main linking the vital parts of the network and connecting existing developments to the recycled water network for the benefit of the community and the environment. It will also cater for future growth in the area and reduce our reliance on valuable drinking water.

We’re working with Zinfra, Jaydo, WSP Joint Venture to help us. 

When it's happening

Works commenced in May 2020 and will take around six months to complete (weather permitting). 

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 on the streets around you.
  • Less car parks around the work zones.
  • Noise from machinery, like beepers when trucks reverse.
  • A change in normal traffic flow.
  • You'll notice that our traffic management team are around too, to make sure people, bikes and cars can move around safely.

Don't miss these details

ZJW will have a temporary site compound on Astralorp Drive, Clyde North 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. 

During the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19) we have changed our engagement practice to ensure our crews can maintain physical distancing. You can view our COVID-19 update below.
