Water Corporation will refurbish 2.3km of wastewater pipes in Bayswater and Maylands in north-eastern Perth to extend the life of the infrastructure by at least 50 years.
Water Corporation General Manager Assets Delivery, Mark Leathersich, said the $2.6 million project formed part of an ongoing program to reline and refurbish wastewater pipes across the state.
“Around 2.3kmof wastewater pipe along Neville, Leake and King William streets in Bayswater and Woodhouse Road in Maylands will be refurbished over the next three months,’’ Mr Leathersich said.
Water Corporation will use trenchless technology to reline wastewater pipes where possible. This technology will avoid the need for extensive excavation to access the wastewater pipes, which will keep disruption to the community and road users to a minimum.
“Residents may notice an increase in activity along the pipeline route, however traffic management will be in place at all times and disruption will be kept to a minimum,’’ Mr Leathersich said.
