Sewer Main Works Underway: Shepparton

Sewer Main Works Underway: Shepparton
  Stage one has been underway for a number of weeks

06 October 2011

Significant construction works along Wanganui Road are underway to improve the reliability of the sewer main servicing Campbell’s Soups factory.

Goulburn Valley Water District Manager, Mr Neville Whittaker, said more than 1.1 km of aging sewer main will be replaced, with two main parts to the project.  “The first part of the project consists of construction of a new pipeline along Wanganui Road, which has been underway since mid September,” said Mr Whittaker.  “The second phase of the project, due to begin next week, is construction of a pipeline to be bored under Numurkah Road.”

“We anticipate some minor inconvenience regarding traffic given the new main will run parallel to Wanganui Road so we ask that residents remain vigilant when driving in the area,” he said. Cyclists are also urged to be mindful of the works taking place on the popular cycling route.

Civil engineering contractors, Ertech, have been engaged to undertake the works.  “With the construction of the pipeline along Wanganui Road proceeding well, efforts will soon be directed to the Numurkah Road bore,” said Mr Whittaker.

Overall, these $1.1 million pipeline works will improve the reliability of the sewer main.  “Completion of the works is anticipated by the start of November 2011,” Mr Whittaker said.
