Queensland Urban Utilities awards Interflow rehabilitation projects
Queensland Urban Utilities has awarded Interflow two major sewer rehabilitation projects, to be completed using trenchless relining.
The projects, which are expected to extend the life of the existing sewer pipes by more than 50 years, will benefit residents in several suburbs in Brisbane and Ipswich.
Interflow will rehabilitate the sewers using SPR™ EX – Expanda pipe, an Australian-developed spiral-wound lining technology.
The first project involves the rehabilitation of trunk sewer pipes, while the second is for smaller-diameter sewer reticulation works.
Interflow is a member of Queensland Urban Utilities’ water and sewer rehabilitation panel, and has completed similar work for the utility in the past five years.
“A benefit of the Expanda pipe relining method for the local community, and for our customer, is that works can be completed during normal business hours, because some flow continues in the sewers and doesn’t need to be bypassed,” said Interflow Northern Operations Manager Jim Rishworth.
The projects are part of Queensland Urban Utilities’ investment in maintaining its sewerage and water infrastructure.
Queensland Urban Utilities General Manager Infrastructure Delivery Michael Kahler said, “Works began in September and will run until early April 2018 in suburbs across Brisbane and Ipswich.
“They are part of our ongoing capital works program to deliver a world class water and sewerage network in our service region.”
Interflow Managing Director Geoff Weaver said the company will be “highly engaged” with local resident during the delivery of both projects.
“We are working to ensure that not only do we deliver the projects on time and on budget, but that we continue to be good neighbours to the local community prior to, during and after the works,” said Mr Weaver.
Both projects will be completed during the current financial year.
