Cooper Street, Somerton Sewer Duplication

Head Contractor: MFJ Constructions Pty Ltd
Asset Owner: Yarra Valley Water

Project Scope: HOBAS CC-GRP Jacking and Open Trench Pipe were supplied for this project. Pipe specifications ranging from DN650 PN1 SN10,000 Pipe to SN80,000 HOBAS Pipe, for a 2.7km pipeline. Pipe for this project was supplied directly to Yarra Valley Water. Global Pipe offered free storage of pipes for the project at our Campbellfield Warehouse which is located close to the Cooper Street site.

Project Background: Yarra Valley Water commissioned a new 2.7-kilometre section of sewer pipe within road reserves in the Somerton area, to ensure the reliability of sewerage systems and to cater for growth in Melbourne’s northern suburbs, and reduce the likelihood of sewage spilling into the environment during heavy rain events.
