Night time works in your area starting August 2021

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 upcoming works in Glen Eira and Brighton Roads, Ripponlea you might see us or our contractor Comdain around.

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

What we're doing

This project is to upgrade the water main at the intersection of Brighton Road and Glen Eira Road, Ripponlea to ensure a reliable water supply.

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

If we need to interrupt your water supply, don’t worry, we’ll notify you in advance to organise connection to a temporary supply.

When it's happening

We’re planning to start work late August until mid September (depending on the weather).

You can expect us to work Sunday to Thursday between 8 pm and 5 am. On the odd occasion, we might 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.
  • Lights as we work at night
  • 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.
