Urban Utilities is committed to excellence in water and sewerage services that meet the evolving needs of our customers and enhance our communities..
As part of this commitment, we are upgrading the infrastructure surrounding Laidley Sewerage Treatment Plant (STP) and the Plainland sewage storage facility.
The works will include upgrades to the existing Gehrke Road storage site, as well as a new sewerage pipeline from Plainland to the Laidley STP, and a new recycled water pipeline.
This upgrade will reduce the current requirement for daily tankering around Plainland, resulting in fewer heavy vehicle movements.
The project will improve service capacities, ensure reliability and the sustainability of wastewater services for the Laidley community.
The project is expected to commence mid-2022. Constructed in stages, the works will take approximately 14 months to complete, weather and site conditions permitting.
Standard work hours are Monday to Friday, from 6:30am to 6:30pm, site and weather conditions permitting.
At times, work may need to be undertaken out of hours or at night to limit network and community impacts.
Night works will be minimised where possible, All work will be subject to site and weather conditions.
Urban Utilities’ delivery partner, John Holland, is committed to keeping the local community informed and will provide advance notification of any out-of-hours works to affected residents and stakeholders.
We will provide more detailed information for residents and businesses in proximity to work areas closer to the construction start date. We’ll keep you updated as the works progress.
