Craigieburn Sewage Transfer Hub Project

Yarra Valley Water is constructing new sewerage infrastructure in Craigieburn to improve our capacity to collect, store and transfer sewage flows from future developments in Melbourne’s northern suburbs.

Critical new sewerage infrastructure is being built on our land next to the existing Craigieburn Sewage Treatment Plant, located east of Sydney Road, and south of Craigieburn Road East, in Craigieburn.

Construction details

Our contractor, CPB Contractors, will construct new infrastructure including two new above-ground tanks, a new sewage pumping station, and associated pipework and channels.


  • April 2017

    Work started in early November 2016. The most noticeable part of our works is still the high frequency of truck movements along our temporary access road, as we transport excavated soil and rock off-site.

    Our earthworks are about 90 per cent done. The high frequency truck movements should reduce by mid-June 2017, when the earthworks are expected to be completed.

    CPB Contractors have nearly completed their shotcrete (concrete sprayed through a specialised hose at high velocity) retaining wall works, which means the construction of concrete structures, including the tanks, will begin in the next month.

Construction is scheduled to be completed in late 2017.

CPB Contractors will work from Monday to Friday, between 6.00am and 6.00pm, and occasionally on Saturday between 6.00am and 5.00pm.
