Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

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 3.8 km of new, large water main.

The new main will be placed underneath 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 complete along Tobruk Avenue and St Mary's street with asphalting of the road surface to be completed in the coming weeks. Work has commenced along Dorene Street, Daws Road and Jose Street with traffic management in place advising of any restrictions and detours during these works.

Night and weekend works are required to complete the installation at Daws Road. Works will take place at the intersection of Daws Road and St Marys Street between 7pm - 7am Sunday 30 January.

You may notice some noise or lights whilst our crews work, as heavy machinery will be used. Our crews are mindful of surrounding residents and will make efforts to reduce noise or light disturbance were possible.

Standard construction hours for work along the rest of the alignment will be Monday to Friday, 7:00am to 5:00pm. If work outside of these hours is required for short periods of time, we will provide additional notification.

To ensure the safety of the 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 alignment, and we have engaged a certified arborist to provide advice and support with this work.

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

We are working with those property and business owners along the alignment route and we will continue to work collaboratively with the Mitcham Council 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 provide you with quick and timely updates.
