Yarra Valley Water


Aitken Boulevard North Water Project

We constructed new water pipes in Mickleham to ensure future residential developments in Melbourne’s northern suburbs can receive a reliable supply of drinking water and recycled water.

Project details

We constructed two new water supply pipelines from Mt Ridley Road to Donnybrook Road Mickleham, approximately 3kms, using 40cm diameter pipes. We also constructed an access road within an easement for our ongoing maintenance purposes. 

These pipelines are an important part of the distribution network, supplying drinking water and recycled water to new developments in Melbourne’s fast-growing northern suburbs.

Construction began October 2018 and was completed by mid-2019.

The new pipelines were located within land owned by developers and council. This alignment was designed to avoid the Mount Ridley Nature Conservation Reserve and other sensitive environmental areas.

Protecting the environment

As part of our planning for this project, we completed extensive environmental investigations. During construction we minimised our environmental impacts on native trees and grasses by completing environmental surveys and transplanting some native plant species prior to construction.
