City West Water

Greening the pipeline

The Main Outfall Sewer (MOS) and Federation Trail bike path in Melbourne’s West will be transformed into vibrant, natural continuous parkland.

Spanning from the suburbs of Spotswood to Werribee – Greening the Pipeline aims to create a place where communities can connect, exercise and play.

Stretching 27km, the transformation of the disused sewer into a multi-recreational green space will:

  • reduce urban heat island effect by increasing tree canopy and providing urban cooling outcomes for Melbourne’s growing population
  • improve amenity via the Federation bike path upgrade – by linking the  Wyndham (growth corridor) to Melbourne’s CBD
  • incorporate efficient integrated water management for both recycled water and storm water harvesting to maximise our precious resource

This innovative program is being  led by Melbourne Water, Wyndham City Council, VicRoads, City West Water and supported by Greening the West.
