Weston Water Supply Upgrade

  • Project typeWater supply upgrade
  • Project scheduleStarts April 2023
  • Contractor nameSouthRoads

UPDATED: 25 August 2023

SouthRoads, on Council’s behalf, has begun upgrading watermains and installing new service connections to properties within the residential area of the Weston Water Supply. This significant project will provide several benefits, including:

  • reducing the risk of breakages and leaks in the network, which will improve supply security over the longer term and reduce ongoing maintenance costs.
  • providing the opportunity for households and businesses in the Residential Zone of Weston to receive an On-Demand water supply (you are currently on a Restricted supply).
  • providing capacity for fire-fighting.

Thanks again to Weston residents and visitors for your patience while we complete this important project. If you have any questions or concerns, please call us.

Dates for work

  • Work was completed on Charles and Gordon Streets in June 2023.
  • Westview Drive works commenced 26 June 2023.
  • With the works on Westview Drive finishing earlier than expected, SouthRoads staff will shortly be replacing the section of water main along Weston Road between Essex St and District Road - expected to start 4 September.

Traffic controls will be in place while this work as done, but unlike other sections of work, there won’t be a quick detour. This means that if you need to travel through area, please plan for short delays – or if you can, plan another route.

  • SouthRoads staff are scheduled to start working in Weston Road and Percy Street from late August and throughout September. If you live in these areas, they'll be in touch with you in advance of work starting.
  • All going well, SouthRoads expect to complete all of the network upgrade works within Weston by December this year.

Traffic management and vehicle access

Traffic management will be in place on the streets being worked on to enable the watermain and service lines to be installed. We will notify affected property owners in advance of work being undertaken and SouthRoads will liaise with you directly to minimise any disruption. 

Property access

SouthRoads will need to access some private properties to install new services lines to the existing water restrictor. Where this is required, we will discuss this with you first to get your agreement and to arrange access at a time that is convenient for you.
