Works in your area from April 2023

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 works in Greenhills Road, Pakenham you might see us or our delivery partner 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 involves relocating of sections of sewer rising main and recycled water main in order to facilitate the installation of a Melbourne Water drain along Greenhills Road.

We're working with FHDB to help us.

When it's happening

We're planning to start works from late April 2023. It should take around 2 months to complete, depending on the weather.

Works have been temporarily placed on hold, we will keep you updated on progress.

You can expect us to work Monday to Friday between 7 am and 5 pm. On the odd occasion, we may need to work at other times for safety, technical or permit 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 Greenhills Road and on the local streets around you.
  • Noise from heavy machinery, like beepers when trucks reverse, continuous running engine/motor sounds and removal of the tank.
  • Access to private properties will not be affected.

Please take care when travelling around the work site.
