WINNER WINNER - Jake Zhang

The June winner of the St Mary's and Melrose Park post construction survey has been drawn and we are pleased to advise that Jake Zhang has won a $50 voucher. Stay tuned for the next draw in July.


We're investing in your local water supply network to increase reliability, by installing a new transfer water main in the St Marys and Melrose Park area. Replacing an older existing pipe currently located under South Road, the new water main will follow an alignment away from this commuter thoroughfare.

What we will be doing

Together with our construction delivery partner John Holland Guidera O'Connor, we will install a total of 3.8km of new, large water main. The new main will be placed under the road and follow a route from the intersection of South Road and Tobruk Avenue, along Tobruk Avenue, Dorene Street, Southern Avenue, St Marys Street, Daws Road, Jose Street and Rozelle Avenue before connecting back into South Road.

A map of the new water main's alignment is shown below.

Current status

Construction is now complete along Tobruk Avenue and much of Dorene Street in St Marys. Our crews have completed most of the required construction along Jose Street in Melrose Park and have returned to the South Road end of Rozelle Avenue to complete final pipe installation.

Standard construction hours along the pipeline alignment are Monday to Friday between 7:00am and 5:00pm. If work outside of these hours is required for short periods of time, we will provide additional notification. Road reinstatement is scheduled to occur shortly after construction.

To ensure the safety of community and work crew, traffic management, including reduced speed and lane access, will be in place through the work zones. Temporary road closures will also be required with detours clearly marked.

Some minor tree trimming may be required along the pipe alignment, and we have engaged a certified arborist to provide advice and support this work.

We are committed to keeping construction impacts to a minimum but some changes to traffic conditions and temporary noise and dust is expected.

We are working with property and business owners along the alignment route and we will continue to work collaboratively with the City of Mitcham to identify potential crossover between projects and identify opportunities to work together.

How you can help

We're keen to plan construction in a way that has the least impact on you and would welcome an opportunity to speak with you to understand the practical things we can do to achieve this.


Sharing your preferred contact details will also help us to prove you with quick and timely updates.
