Newtown feeder main: work has begun

Work has begun on a relatively small but visible infrastructure project: an upgrade to the Newtown feeder main.

We are upgrading the 70-year-old water main to improve the reliability of water supply to residents in Newtown and Highton.

The $1.8 million project involves laying a one-kilometre long new section of pipeline along Queens Park Road, between the Queens Park Public Golf Course and St Joseph’s College.

Work begun this week on a 250-metre section west of Queens Park Bridge (Highton side), adjacent the golf course.

One lane of traffic will be closed while construction crews are on site and traffic management procedures are in place. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

For more detail, please refer to the project page.
