Melbourne Water to undertake water main renewal

Melbourne Water will soon start speaking to residents and businesses about its upcoming M41 water main renewal project.

The M41 water main travels from Merri Creek, Northcote to Edinburgh Gardens, under Queens and Alexandra Parades through to George Street, Fitzroy. The route follows George Street to Victoria Parade, and then runs around Fitzroy Gardens to Wellington Parade.

The water main supplies Melbourne’s inner-suburbs with drinking water and almost 100 years old and at high risk of failure.

Some site investigation works will take place in December 2016, with construction on the water main expected to start in mid to late-2017. Works will take place for approximately 12 – 18 months.

Further information about the project appears on the Melbourne Water website
