Gippsland Water has commenced the final stage of its Warragul central sewer replacement with the installation of new mains in Spring Street, Melbourne, Victoria.
This last work in the five year, $13 million project will conclude in June 2015, with the last section of the four kilometre replacement sewer main installed.
“This investment helps secure the future growth of the Warragul township,” said General Manager of Customer Services & Communications at Gippsland Water, Paul Clark.
“The Baw Baw Shire is one of the fastest growing areas of Victoria, which means that services to match that growth need to be planned and delivered,” concluded Mr. Clark.
The Spring Street work was completed after consultation with the Baw Baw Shire about its planned expansion of the Warragul Leisure Centre on Burke Street.
“The preliminary work on the Leisure Centre expansion required some complicated gas mains to be installed,” explained Director of Community Assets with Baw Baw Shire, Phil Cantillon.
“We scheduled our work to commence immediately after Gippsland Water finished its work. We were able to plan this so that both jobs could be carried out safely and efficiently,” added Mr. Cantillon.
Works along Burke Street will see traffic and parking disruptions over the next eight months.
Gippsland Water thanks the community for its patience during this project.
