Contractor uses trenchless to avoid disruptions

A contractor has employed trenchless technology to minimise disruptions during a water main replacement project.

DM Civil used trenchless techniques to replace a section of DN 900 steel watermain in Perth, Western Australia as part of Water Corporation’s Pipes for Perth program.

The program aims to reline and renew wastewater pipes across the state, and will extend the life of existing infrastructure by up to 50 years.

During the project, the contractor will replace approximately 400 m of reticulation water main and 400 m of distribution main on Mount Street in West Perth, between Kings Park and the Mitchell Freeway.

DM Civil’s use of no-dig methods meant the project was able to avoid disrupting traffic and the environment in Cliff Street and the Kings Park grounds.

A key focus of the works is ongoing stakeholder engagement; DM Civil has reported that there have been no complaints, only positive feedback throughout project.

The initial construction program began in the summer period, with tie-in scheduled for autumn 2019.
