Construction to install the wastewater mains pipes for Clyde’s new reticulated wastewater system is underway.
The first mains pipes have already been installed along the entranceway to the dog park – these will eventually connect up to the pump station.
Crews will then be moving along Sunderland and Pyke streets over the next few months installing both mains and lateral pipes up to private property boundaries.
Work to install laterals on private properties will start during winter.
“We’re intending to pop into each address along the way before we get going to talk with residents so that they are aware of what’s happening and to answer any questions they have,” says Seipp Construction Ltd project manager Greg Valentine.
Traffic management will be in place in areas where work is being done. Details of this will be circulated before work begins.
The team has been working really hard to accommodate the needs of the Clyde community and as much as possible to minimise disruption.
“We’ve talked with the business community and we know that business owners’ preference is for the work to be done in the business district over the colder months when things are quieter,” says Capital Projects Programme Manager Patrick Keenan.
“Our plan is also to tie in work around the school area when things are not so busy in the school year, such as in school holidays.”
We’ll keep you updated as work moves through the central Clyde area.
