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 aims to start in November 2021 and will be completed in progressive stages. Crews typically work Monday - Friday, from 7am - 5pm.

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.


Next steps

We will keep you informed and update this page as the new construction methodology is finalised and when we get closer to starting construction of the new water main, with our commitment to keep construction impacts to a minimum.





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.
