Project Description

The Walter Road project was a design & construct contract for the renewal of a 2km section of DN460RC distribution water main located in Perth from the intersection of Beechboro Road and Walter Road to the intersection of Marion St and Walter Road. The water main was part of the East Yokine/ Morley water supply system providing water to the areas of Bayswater, Bassendean, Morley and the surrounding area.

The project was completed under significant time constraints as the water main could only be taken out of service during the lower demand periods. The construction period of the program was approximately 10.5 weeks including the full restoration.

ITS’ community engagement process ensured minimal disruptions to all affected stakeholders and the general public. In addition, the two way traffic flow maintained along Walter Road throughout the duration of the project allowed for full road access and traffic flow. This project was highly rated by WaterCorp who viewed ITS’ Pressureline technology as a key reason for the projects success.
