Sewer works completed
The major $25 million infrastructure project to build an additional sewer along Spencer St is now complete.
Finished ahead of schedule, safely and within budget, the upgraded sewer is now connected and working for the thousands of residents and commuters who live and work along Spencer St.
The two-year project has increased the capacity of the 122-year-old sewer. The upgraded sewer now has 25 times the capacity of the existing one.
City West Water’s general manager for infrastructure and delivery Maree Lang said: “Our thanks to everyone, on and off-site. Especially to the local community and businesses, visitors to the city and the countless commuters who showed great patience and tolerance while works have been underway.”
Construction of the additional sewer was a major project. The pipeline is 700m long and buried 11m underground. Crews worked weekends and overnight for just over a year.
