Works in your area starting early 2023

You might not notice a lot of the work we do because most of it is beneath your feet. Every day, we’re maintaining and upgrading the pipes and pumps that keep water flowing. With some works in Greenhills Road, Pakenham you might see us or our contractor Fulton Hogan Delplant Beca Joint Venture (FHDB) around.

Here’s what to expect while we get the job done.

What we're doing

This project involves the relocating of sections of sewer rising main and recycled water main in order to facilitate the installation of a Melbourne Water drain along Greenhills Road, Pakenham.

We're working with FHDB to help us.

When it's happening

Investigative works are due to commence early 2023.

We'll be in touch before we start any works to provide further updates. 


What might impact you

We’ll do our best to keep impacts to a minimum, however these are the kinds of things you might notice while we work:

  • More trucks on Greenhills Road and on the local streets around you.
  • Noise from heavy machinery, like beepers when trucks reverse, continuous running engine/motor sounds and removal of the tank.
  • Access to private properties will not be affected.

Please take care when travelling around the work site.
