A new 5km trunk water main is planned to start construction in 2022 to connect the growing suburbs of Epsom and Huntly.

The 450mm water main is a key piece of infrastructure and will be one of the largest water supply pipeline projects installed in our region next year.

Once complete, the new water main will help boost water flows in the area.

The pipeline works are not expected to impact the normal water supply of households in the area. They may notice increased heavy vehicle movements, extra traffic and noise associated with construction.

Construction will involve a mix of open trench and pipeline boring works, and traffic management will be in place.

A number of cross-connections will branch off the new trunk main.

Local contractor S & R Engineering and Construction has been appointed to carry out the pipeline works.
