A $4.4 million upgrade of the wastewater network at Logan Reserve is underway. Upgrade works will include the installation of 3.4km of wastewater pipeline along Logan Reserve Road and Bayes Road, and the construction of a new wastewater pump station.
Roads and Water Infrastructure Committee Chairperson for the Logan City Council, Councillor Don Petersen (Division 4), said the project, which will be delivered by Council’s Logan Water Alliance, would provide essential infrastructure to help facilitate future growth.
“This is one of several wastewater projects Council is committed to within Logan City, and is vital to help prepare for future population growth in the region,” he said.
“As more and more residents move to the southern parts of Logan, it’s really important that we have the correct infrastructure in place.
“The improvements will provide new infrastructure to support new developments in the area, and will enhance the overall capacity of the existing wastewater network.
“Logan Water Alliance has a good track record of delivering these types of projects in a manner that reduces community and environmental impacts.”
Division 9 Councillor, Phil Pidgeon, confirmed his support of the project.
“This project follows a recent $8.6 million upgrade of the wastewater network from Logan Village to Crestmead (along Chambers Flat Road),” he said.
“These improvements involved 9.7km of new pipeline and construction of two new pump stations at both Logan Village and Logan Reserve.
“Given the majority of the works will be carried out on government-owned land, we anticipate minimal disruption during construction, which should be completed by March 2013.
“Works notices are currently being sent to residents in nearby properties to inform them of these improvements.”
The Logan Reserve wastewater network upgrade is part of Logan City Council’s and Logan Water Alliance’s program of works to improve water and wastewater operations across Logan City.
Logan Water Alliance is a public private sector partnership comprising Logan City Council and engineering service providers Tenix, Parsons Brinckerhoff and Cardno.
The alliance was established in August 2009 and is responsible for planning, designing, constructing and commissioning new and improved water and wastewater infrastructure across the city.
