Albion Street Bridge Sewer Project
We are building a new 110-metre-long sewer pipe and attaching it to the side of the Albion Street bridge, to improve the reliability of the sewerage system and reduce the likelihood of sewage spills occurring due to pipe blockages.
The new pipe will cross over the M2 Citylink Freeway, and will be a back-up to an existing sewer pipe servicing the area.
Construction activities will involve:
- Working on existing sewer manholes at both ends of the Albion Street bridge
- Drilling new brackets to the outside of the bridge. These brackets will hold the new sewer pipe.
- Lifting the new sewer pipe into place, and welding it to the new brackets.
Our contractor, Zinfra, will complete this project in two stages, starting on Tuesday 13 February 2018.
The first stage will occur in February and April 2018, and involves working during daylight hours - 7.00am to 4.00pm, Monday to Friday.
The second stage involves overnight works - 10.00pm to 5.00am at certain dates (not every day) during April and May 2018.
The project is scheduled to be completed in May 2018.
Water and sewerage services will not be affected by these works.
During Zinfra's overnight works, people living near the Albion Street bridge may notice some noise, including the use of drills, machinery and trucks.
We have been liaising with the M2 CityLink Freeway manager, Transurban, as well as Moreland City Council, to ensure the safety of all motorists during the works.
We will do our best to minimise the impact of these works on people in the community.
