Water Corporation works

The Water Corporation are currently working on the following projects in the City of Subiaco

  • Main drain upgrade

  • Water Main upgrade (pipes for Perth)

Main Drain Upgrade (December 2017 to May 2018)

The Subiaco main drain was installed over 100 years ago and due to development of the area over the last century the local drainage systems no longer have the capacity to protect local homes and businesses against flooding during large storm events.

The new drain will be constructed under the north side of the road on Churchill Ave between Townshend Road and Axon Street. This drain will fill with storm water during major storm events and allows the water to then soak into the soil, rather than conveying water through the traditional drainage system.

Preliminary work on the main drain upgrade began in early December 2017 and construction works commenced in early January 2018.  The works will take approximately four months to complete. A full road closure will be in place for the duration of the project, with access available to local traffic only.
