Ballarat Street Water Main Renewal

To ensure reliability of your water supply, we are upgrading a section of water main on Ballarat St Yarraville between Murray and Anderson St.

The water main has served the community well during its lifespan, but is now in need of replacement to ensure it continues to operate efficiently in the future.


What are we doing?

These renewal works will include:

  • Laying the new water main in the road; this will be on the east side of the pop up park and under the parking bays on Ballarat Rd.
  • Renewing water service connections on Ballarat Street.
  • Reinstatement of the impacted areas.


Location of the works


When will the works take place?

  • Works to replace the section of the main are expected to start early June and will take approximately six weeks to complete.
  • Works will take place Monday to Friday 7.00am to 5.00pm.


What does this mean for you?

  • We will commence construction in the pop up park and then continue down Ballarat St. We anticipate the project to be completed by mid July.
  • There will be no interruptions to sewer or water services during the works. If any planned disruptions to your supply are required as part of City West Water’s works you will be contacted at least 48 hours in advance.
  • Businesses and residents may be connected to a temporary above ground water supply.
  • Noise from machinery and construction vehicles.
  • Noise from excavation of some areas of the road surface.
  • There will be new pipes, machinery, building materials (such as gravel) and work trucks in the surrounding streets.
  • The pop up park will be closed for the duration of the works. There will be a fence around the works in the pop up park. Footpaths will be open.
  • Local detours will be in place with traffic management to safely guide pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles around the works.
  • Car parking may be impacted as the works move along the street.
