The Brighton Main Sewer has been servicing the Brighton and Hampton areas since 1907. Recent inspections of the sewer have revealed it is in poor condition and needs to be rehabilitated.
The Brighton Main Sewer Rehabilitation Project will improve the condition of the existing sewer extending its life for another 50 years.
We are entering the initial design stage of the project and will keep the local community informed as the project progresses. Investigation works are currently taking place and construction works are planned between March 2018 and March 2019.
Site Investigations Works
Site investigations along the project alignment began in February 2017 and will be completed by the end of April 2017. These works include:
- underground service location and feature survey
- utilising boreholes to determine soil characteristics and groundwater level
- inspections and data gathering by specialist contractors and consultants.
Some localised traffic changes will involve half road closures at manholes to ensure that investigation works are safety conducted.
Work hours will take place, Monday to Friday 7am to 6pm and Saturday 7am to 1pm.
