Albion Street Bridge Sewer Project
In August 2018, we finished building a new 110-metre-long sewer pipe and attaching it to the side of the Albion Street bridge, which has improved the reliability of the sewerage system and reduced the likelihood of sewage spills occurring due to pipe blockages.
The new pipe crosses over the M2 Citylink Freeway, and is a back-up to an existing sewer pipe servicing the area.
Construction activities involved:
- Working on existing sewer manholes at both ends of the Albion Street bridge
- Drilling new brackets to the outside of the bridge to hold the new sewer pipe.
- Lifting the new sewer pipe into place, and welding it to the new brackets.
Our contractor, Zinfra, completed construction activities this project in June 2018.
System testing and reinstatement works to fix up affected areas, including street kerbs, are scheduled to be completed in August 2018.
