Water upgrades coming to Triabunna

Water upgrades coming to Triabunna

Works have commenced at Triabunna to improve water security and the delivery of essential water services in the area.

The project includes the construction of a new reservoir and water mains.

TasWater’s Capital Delivery Office (CDO) Project Manager Nathan Toomer said these improvements will provide great benefits to the community.

“We are constructing a two megalitre storage reservoir and new water mains which will be installed on Selwyn Street, Tapner Court, Ryan Place, Howells Place and Roberts Street,” he said.

“This project will improve water pressure for residents and provide better fire protection capabilities for local emergency service personnel to better protect the community.

“Once complete, it will also support future development and growth of the town while ensuring the infrastructure is compliant with current guidelines.”

The scale of the project includes the construction of the new six-metre-high reservoir and drilling under the existing road to install 800 metres of water mains.

“We would like to thank our customers for their patience while we undertake this important upgrade work,” Mr Toomer said.

This project is part of our commitment to delivering new and upgraded water infrastructure improvements in the Glamorgan Spring Bay area and forms part of the $1.1 billion capital works program over the next four years.

This program of works, undertaken by TasWater’s Capital Delivery Office, has boosted local employment with about 93 per cent of all contracts to upgrade or build new infrastructure going to Tasmanian businesses. This means hundreds of jobs for Tasmanians, better outcomes for our customers and the environment.

The new reservoir and water main project for Triabunna is anticipated for completion before the end of the year, with Fulton Hogan carrying out the work as the main contractor.
