The Government’s commitment to the people of Sydney is continuing with a $6 million Sydney Water project to improve wastewater services across its area of operations.
Work is being undertaken on a large wastewater pipe known as the Concord Submain, after work was completed on the Thornleigh, Waverley-Woollahra and East Hills Submains recently.
These mains service a vast area including Double Bay and Woollahra ( Waverley-Woollahra Submain), Pennant Hills, Dural, Hornsby, Thornleigh and Castle Hill (Thornleigh Submain) Revesby, Padstow and Picnic Point (East Hills Submain), and Strathfield, Concord, Mortlake and Rhodes (Concord Submain).
The work was welcomed by Mr John Sidoti, Member for Drummoyne, and Mr Charles Casuscelli, Member for Strathfield.
“This work is a substantial investment in delivering high-quality wastewater services that protect public health and the environment,” Mr Sidoti said.
“It will improve the performance of the wastewater system for thousands of homes, reducing the risk of overflows and ensuring the people of Sydney have a safe and reliable service.”
Mr Casuscelli said the work was due for completion by the end of the year, with crews currently working from Queen Street, North Strathfield to Railway Parade, Burwood.
“This investment shows the commitment of the NSW Government to provide high quality and reliable services to the community.”
This essential work is part of Sydney Water’s SewerFix program to improve the wastewater system and protect public health and the environment. From 2012-2016, Sydney Water will spend $400 million on its 23,000 kilometre wastewater network.
