Water Corporation is upgrading the wastewater pump station and associated pressure main at Bedingfield Way No.1 Pump Station in Australind, WA.
The existing pump station serves the Australind Sewerage District and is located approximately 150 metres west of the Brunswick River.
The project works will involve:
- Construction of about 406 metres of 250 mm diameter below-ground pressure main and associated fittings
- Recommissioning of about 81 metres of redundant water distribution main on the Paris Road Bridge, to be used as a pressure main
- Upgrade of the pump station capacity, including provision of a new odour filter pit and a new bypass arrangement.
These works are expected to proceed soon, and will take about 11 months to complete.
While works on and around the Paris Road Bridge will be appropriately timed to minimise inconvenience to pedestrians and motorists, some traffic delays can be expected.
The community will be advised of the timing and traffic management arrangements for the Paris Road Bridge works in due course.
