Work began in May 2022, utilising the remaining Ministry of Health subsidy to install a 500 metre new polyethylene (PE) pipeline from Neighbours Street down Conn’s Creek Road. This project recommenced in July, installing a further 1,200m metres of pipeline to the top of Stone Wall on Conn’s Creek Road, including a flow meter on Conn’s Creek Road. This portion of work was completed by TruLine Civil.
The remaining section of trunk main from the Stone Wall to the intakes is currently underway and is being completed by WestReef Services Ltd. The tentative date for completion is October 2023 (weather dependent).
This new PE pipeline is specified to meet the pressure of the supply and is better suited in above ground applications compared with PVC. Now that the trunk main has been replaced, breakages in the supply should be rare and disruptions will be minimal.
