2020-2021 CBD Water Main Replacements
The water pipes in some sections of the Brisbane CBD are nearly 100 years old and are reaching the end of their serviceable life.
We will be upgrading sections of these pipes to ensure the reliability of the water network is maintained and we keep the water moving to your taps.
Our delivery partner, Diona, will work progressively to install the new water main replacements in the following locations:
Most of these water pipes are located within the council verge, however some pipes are found underneath the roadway.
To complete this work, our construction crew will be digging down to expose the old pipe and fittings, before removing them in sections and replacing with new pipes.
Our work in the CBD will be competed at night to comply with approved traffic permits and minimise the impacts of planned water outages when we connect the new water main to the existing water network. All work will be completed in accordance with regulator permits and approvals.
All of the work will be completed during the night, between 6pm and 6am, Sunday to Thursday.
