A new AU$3.5 million project will support a Western Australian city’s population growth by upgrading the region’s wastewater infrastructure.
This week, the McGowan Government – through Water Corporation – will commence work to install a new 2.4 km wastewater pipeline in the City of Swan, WA.
A combination of trenchless technology and open trench excavation will be used to minimise disruption to both the community and environment and will be carried out by Perth-based contractor Civcon.
WA Water Minister Dave Kelly says the new wastewater main will improve wastewater services and ensure essential infrastructure is in place to support population growth in the City of Swan.
Additional local subcontractors and suppliers will assist in the project, including Ground Support Systems, DJ MacCormick Contractors, Knee Asphalt, Edge Transport Solutions and McRobert Contracting Services.
In 2019–20, the McGowan Government will invest a total of AU$339 million across the metropolitan area on projects for water, wastewater and drainage.
Works are expected to be completed in early 2020.
