The 2023 works programme for the Knights Road pipe renewals project has been confirmed.

Current Status

Construction for the second phase of works begins October 2023.

  • Stormwater and wastewater renewal works in Riddiford Street, Penrose Street, Willoughby Street and Wilford Street - mid October 2023.

  • Stormwater and wastewater renewal works in Waterloo Road, Witako Street, Anderson Grove and Pinny Ave - early 2024.

What we're doing

This is a five-year programme of work that aims to improve the condition of the stormwater and wastewater network and reduce the risk of wastewater entering groundwater, the water supply, and local waterways.

The work programme is divided into priority area one and priority area two, each will be delivered in four packages.

The work includes:

 The completion of 2.8kms of CCTV surveys,

 Approximately 1.5kms of repairs and renewals of wastewater pipes in 2021/22, and 2-3km of wastewater renewals in 2022,

 Upgrading 3kms of stormwater pipes in 2022, to avoid disruption in the same area twice,

 Renewing some laterals to property boundaries or to the mains,

 Looking at the condition of the manholes and stormwater catch pits,

 Additional flushing and survey work, with additional work identified to be added to the project programme.
