Interflow safeguarding pipes in South Yarra

Interflow’s South East Water crews are working hard to complete a pipe upgrade along Chapel Street.

The current watermains along Chapel street date back to the early 1920s. At approximately 100 years old, they are nearing the end of their serviceable life.

Interflow are in the process of upgrading the pipes along Chapel street, between Alexandra Avenue and Toorak Road, to prevent the risk of bursts and flooding in the area.

Crews are currently working in dual shifts between 7 am and 10 pm. The works are scheduled for completion by the end of November. Night works on Toorak Road are expected to be completed by early February 2023.

On the western side of the street, the company are replacing 560 m of 100 mm main with a brand new 225 mm pipeline. On the east side, Interflow’s crew will slip line the 300 mm main with 280 mm polyethylene (PE) pipe.

Interflow and South East Water have been working closely to minimise noise and impact on the local community. South East Water has a community hub at 670 Chapel street where members of the community can get more information.

With 80 plus years experience, Interflow’s reputation for world class solutions means that South East Water’s pipes are in good hands.
