Perth Stadium Water Main Upgrade Success

Project Owner: Water Corporation
Project Head Contractor: RCR Tomlinson
Tunnelling Contractor: DJ MacCormick
Project Name: Burswood and Lathlain Water Main, Perth WA

To ensure a sustainable clean water supply for the new Perth Stadium and surrounding developments, Water Corporation of WA contracted the construction of a 2.7km water pipeline through the town of Victoria Park to meet the new supply and demand. The pipeline passes two critical pieces of state infrastructure, the Great Eastern Highway and the Armadale/Thornlie Rail Line. These are the main links into and out of the Perth CBD.

Global Pipe was selected to supply over 120m of reinforced concrete jacking pipe used to jack under the live infrastructure. This ensured minimal disruption to the City of Perth and its nearby residents and businesses and had minimal impact on the major road and rail infrastructure.

This concrete jacking pipe product range is manufactured by SPC Industries; a world-class provider of concrete jacking pipe and precast products. Established in 2002, SPC Industries has an extensive history manufacturing precast concrete for Singapore’s most demanding infrastructure projects.

The two stages of the project were completed in February 2017.
