In mid-October 2011, City West Water commenced some important sewer works within Yarra Park.
The works will see construction of a 240-metre sewer pipeline in Yarra Park (south of William Barak Bridge) near Brunton Ave.
The works will ensure that the sewer system can cope with periods of high demand, especially during large events at the MCG. The works are scheduled to take approximately three months to complete.
During the works, residents and passers-by may notice some noise generated from trucks and excavation equipment, but to keep disruption to a minimum, all planned works will be carried out during daylight hours.
The works area has been fenced off to provide a safe and secure work environment for both workers and park users.
City West Water is taking extra care to ensure the works respect the delicate environment of Yarra Park, and the project has been designed so that the English Elms, Oaks and several Gum trees on site will not be impacted. The site will be fully restored at the completion of the works.
If you have any questions regarding these works, please contact Andrew Sinn of Armstrong Constructions on (03)9379 0981 or Scott Jordan-Legg of City West Water on (03) 9313 8378.
