Details

  • Most of the pipe renewal on this job will be done using trenchless methodology. A liner can be installed into the pipe to renew it without digging up the street. Some pipes will require excavation to carry out localised repairs prior to installing the new liner.
  • The pipes will be cleaned then inspected with CCTV. Decisions on any pre-repairs are made and repairs done if required. Then the liner is installed in to the existing pipe through the existing access manholes.
  • Some works my need to be undertaken at night when sewer flows are lower. Notice will be provided to residents if that is required.
  • Traffic management will be in place to enable the crews to work safely.
  • Wastewater flows from your property will be maintained throughout the works.
