Gloucester Street Water Upgrade
Construction Started: November 2015
Construction completed: January 2017
The Gloucester Street Water Upgrade project is being undertaken to both increase current water capacity in the Taradale South Area and to cater for future urban development.
The first stage of work was integrated during the upgrade of the Meeanee-Lee intersection in 2015 and involved establishing a new water line off the existing 450 water main from Taradale reservoir. The new main was initially laid out to a Pressure Reducing Chamber outside the extent of the intersection works.
The second stage began construction in November 2016. This stage carried on from the end of the first stage and involved laying 860m of DN375 water main in the road along Gloucester Street as well as 3 smaller connections to existing mains in Gebbie, Howard and O’Dowd Roads.
The project is expected to be completed in January 2017.
