We are upgrading an existing pump station to continue to service Werribee’s growing west by providing sewer services to 60,000 new dwellings.
These works involve constructing a new pump station to replace the old station, as well as installing a new sewer line under the Princess Freeway to divert sewage to the new pump station. A tunnel boring machine will be used to construct the line under to freeway to avoid any road disruptions.
Once the new pump station is operational, the old pump station will be decommissioned with the site reinstated to its previous condition.
October Project Update
Quinn Civil was recently appointed to undertake these works on behalf of Greater Western Water, with early works beginning on site last month. All project approvals have now been obtained, with construction works and vegetation clearing now beginning. Traffic management is also in place to ensure safe operations.
Please note that customer’s sewerage services will be not be impacted by these works.
