Yarra Valley Water


Pretty Sally Water Main Project

We're building a new pipeline in the Northern Highway road reserve and replacing a section of the existing water main in McNaughton Close, to meet growing demand and to ensure the reliability of our water supply network in Wallan.

What's involved

  • The new main will be located on the eastern side of the Northern Highway, from William Street to Carmelo Court within the Hidden Valley estate.
  • Once this new water main has been constructed, we will install a new pipeline in McNaughton Close. This new pipeline will be within the road reserve.

New pipeline alignment

Our Project Partner, MFJ Constructions, expect to start work in March 2022 and to be completed by November 2022, subject to weather and ground conditions.

What to expect

  • Normal working hours will be 7am to 5pm Monday to Friday and 7am to 3pm on Saturday.
  • While constructing the new water main along the highway, MFJ Constructions will:
    • establish No-Go Zones and use trenchless technology to protect vegetation
    • remove some vegetation in accordance with Mitchell Shire Council permits.
  • Sections of the shared path along the Northern Highway and from the highway to Carmelo Court will be closed to pedestrians and cyclists from time to time. For safety, people will be diverted around the work site.
  • While working within McNaughton Close, motorists will be diverted around the work site.
  • These works will be noisy and dusty, especially when cutting the trench for the new pipes.
  • We don’t anticipate there’ll be any interruption to your services during these works.

We don’t expect there’ll be any interruption to your services during these works.
