Knight Street drainage works nearing completion
Works to upgrade stormwater drainage in Knight Street between Wyndham Street and The Boulevard are nearing completion.
The works included:
- site establishment and traffic management;
- delivery to site, excavation and installation of concrete stormwater drainage pipes;
- backfilling of the pipeline trenches and restoration of surfaces;
- supply and installation of a Gross Pollutant Trap (GPT); and
- relocation of existing services to some properties, eg sewer and water connections.
Greater Shepparton City Council's Senior Construction Engineer, Saleem Shaikh said the upgrades will ensure improved stormwater management for the community.
"The new and upgraded pipeline will provide additional flow capacity within the system, and reduced temporary flooding upstream of Welsford Street. Water quality discharging into the Goulburn River will be improved with the installation of the Gross Pollutant Trap at the outfall." Mr Shaikh said.
"We would like to thank all residents and road users who were inconvenienced by the works. We appreciated your patience during the project."
Funding for the $631,700 project was allocated from the the Drainage Replacement Program (Urban) in Council's 2011/2012 Budget.
