Maffra Trenching and Boring, which has done similar work at Coongulla Glenmaggie, will connect around 65 km of sewer pipes and associated fittings within the township of Loch Sport.
The contract was one of three awarded by Gippsland Water as part of the $A40.3 million Loch Sport Sewage Scheme project.
Sydney’s Ledonne Construction won an $3A.8 million contract to construct two new sewage pumping stations, while Victorian company Pressure Sewer Services Australia won a $A6.48 million contract to design, install, test and commission 1,622 pressure sewer systems.
All contractors are required to operate according to an endorsed Environmental Management Plan to protect ecologically valuable vegetation and manage the high water table and soil conditions in the area.
The Loch Sport Sewage Scheme will be delivered by Gippsland Water as part of the Victorian Government’s Country Towns Water Supply and Sewerage Scheme Program, which listed Loch Sport among 35 priority towns to be provided with water or sewerage services.
