On behalf of City West Water (CWW), Rob Carr has delivered the second stage of the Spencer Street Sewer Project 900m in length to upgrade Lonsdale Street’s current sewer infrastructure.
The $21 project is a part of a four-stage expansion of the Melbourne’s sewer system with a total budget of $80 million. The new pipeline now joins the sewer installed in the late-2018 during the first stage. Maree Lang, City West Water Managing Director, stated, “With the existing sewer over 120 years old, the new sewer pipe will help cater to the growing demands of the Melbourne CBD now and into the future. We sincerely thank the thousands of city residents, workers, and commuters who adapted to the changed conditions while we carried out construction along Lonsdale Street.”
Spencer Street Sewer Project in a nutshell:
- Work started in November 2017
- Work completed in November 2020
- The third stage estimated begin time in mid-2021
