985 Plenty Road Sewerage Project
Yarra Valley Water constructed a 650m sewerage pipeline to support the growth of communities in South Morang.
This new sewer was constructed in two stages:
- Stage 1 involved constructing a 300m pipeline along Plenty Road . This was completed in January 2020.
- Stage 2 involved constructing a 350m pipeline along Vincent Drive between Songbird Crescent and the rail reserve.
The Stage 2 works were on-hold while we redesigned the pipeline alignment, from the northern side of Vincent Drive to the southern side of the road reserve . Following ground investigations and discussions with stakeholders and property owners, this section was constructed using open cut excavations.
Once the new pipeline had been constructed, it was connected to the existing sewer on the northern side of Vincent Drive. Construction started in December 2020 and was completed by November 2021.
Our Project Partners, Comdain, worked between 7am and 5pm Monday to Friday and from 7am to 1pm on Saturday.
There was no interruption to water supply or sewerage services during this work.
