Armstrong Creek update

Media release updated Thursday 23 June 2011


Water and sewerage services for the first stage of the Warralily development are on track to meet development timeframes.

The Boundary Road water main, which will be the primary drinking water source for the new development, is in the final stages of construction and is expected to be completed in the coming weeks.

The project has involved installation of more than 4.5km of pipeline along Boundary Road. Remaining works involve crossing the Surf Coast Highway and Barwon Heads Road using underground boring.

Construction of the Charlemont Road water main has commenced and is expected to be completed by September. This is a 1.7km pipeline that will transfer drinking water to the Warralily development.

The Lake Road sewer infrastructure is also being installed, with a scheduled completion date of August, 2011. Works are approximately 50 per cent complete on this 900 m section of sewer. Pump station works have started and are expected to be completed in November, 2011.

Design of the Mt Duneed recycled water tank has been completed and tenders for its construction are being assessed.

Design work is continuing for the Keystone Business Park water mains and southern precinct dual pipe projects, with survey underway.

Barwon Water will invest more than $150 million in water, sewerage and recycled water services at Armstrong Creek.
