SA Water has completed its $1.9 million water mains replacement on Grenfell Street in Adelaide’s CBD.
The project, which began in August, has been completed ahead of schedule. The works replaced a 561 metre section of pipe between King William Street and Pulteney Street.
Mark Gobbie, SA Water’s General Manager Operations & Maintenance, said SA Water had engaged with local businesses, Adelaide City Council, and the Department of Planning, Transport and Infrastructure, throughout the works.
“SA Water and the project team worked to ensure impacts on the public were minimised,” Mark said.
“SA Water would like to thank businesses, residents, road users, and pedestrians for their patience during the process.”
The replacement of the water main was fast-tracked after a burst in June affected Grenfell Street businesses, morning commuters, and traffic in the vicinity.
SA Water worked with South Australian company SEM Utilities to deliver the project.
SA Water’s water main burst rate is currently the lowest it has been since detailed records commenced in the early 1990s.
