Gippsland Water’s new water supply main for Sale (VIC) is almost complete, with 80 per cent of the pipeline now installed.
General Manager of Customer Service and Communications Paul Clark said, “Our contractors are currently working around the service station at Cunninghame Street, Reeve Street and Railway Place, and work is also continuing along Thomson Street.”
The work currently being carried out is part of the 1.9km pipeline that will run from the Sale Water Treatment Plant at Waterworks Road, to the town centre along Cunninghame and Reeve Street, Railway Place, Thomson Street, Stawell Street and Desailly Street, ending at Macarthur Street.
The project will ensure continuity of supply for Gippsland Water customers, and is one part of a suite of investments in the Sale area amounting to more than $11million between 2013 and 2018.
“Gippsland Water would like to thank the residents of Sale for their patience during this period and over the next couple of months as we aim to complete the project as quickly as possible to minimise disruption,” Mr Clark said.
Construction of the pipeline is expected to be completed by the end of June 2016.
