985 Plenty Road Sewerage Project
Yarra Valley Water is constructing 650m of sewerage infrastructure to support the growth of communities in South Morang.
This new sewer is being constructed in two stages:
- Stage 1 involved constructing a 300m pipeline along Plenty Road . This was completed in January 2020.
- Stage 2 involves constructing a 350m pipeline along Vincent Drive between Songbird Crescent and the rail reserve.
Stage 2 works have been on-hold while we redesigned the pipeline alignment. Following ground investigations and discussions with stakeholders and property owners, this section of the pipeline will be constructed using open cut excavations within the road reserve on the southern side of Vincent Drive.
Construction details – Stage 2
Once the new pipeline has been constructed, it will be connected to the existing sewer on the northern side of Vincent Drive. Construction starts in December 2020 and is expected to be completed by early February 2021, with a break from 23 December to 3 January 2021.
Our Project Partners, Comdain, will work between 7am and 5pm Monday to Friday and from 7am to 1pm on Saturday.
One lane of Vincent Drive, from Bushlark Way, will be closed to traffic. Please drive safely and follow the directions of the traffic controllers onsite. There will be additional traffic on local roads as our construction crews travel to and from site - and when specialist machinery and equipment is being delivered.
The footpath on the northern side of Vincent Drive will be open, with traffic controllers onsite to assist pedestrians through the construction zone. There is no change to local bus stops.
Our work will be noisy and dusty.
The trees within the road reserve on the southern side of Vincent Drive will be removed, with approval from Whittlesea City Council.
There will be no interruption to your water supply or sewerage service during this work.
