WA Water Minister, Mia Davies, recently announced that the State Government will replace 3.2 kilometres of wastewater main in Spalding.
The $2.3million project to upgrade the wastewater system will be carried out by RCR Tomlinson and is expected to begin in November 2015 for completed in April 2016.
Ms Davies said the project will cater for growth in the area.
“The Water Corporation will carry out the project in two stages. The first stage of construction will begin at the existing Broome Street pump station and continue along Houston and Crawford streets,” Ms Davies said.
“The second stage will take place at the intersection of Webberton Road and Anderson Street and will continue south along the Webberton Road future extension.
“This project will ensure the area has the necessary infrastructure to grow and develop in future.”
Ms Davies said work would be carried out within existing road reserves and would also take place along the future road reserve earmarked for the extension of Webberton Road.
“Traffic management will be in place and access to Houston and Crawford streets will be available for local road users. Local residents will be contacted when their driveways need to be temporarily blocked,” Ms Davies said.
