New Merri Creek Project

- posted by Admin RBM on


RBM Drainage have been hard at work undertaking new sewer rehabilitation works on the Merrie Creek network in Preston and Coburg. We were awarded this contract from JBH & KBR on behalf of Melbourne Water late last year.

The upgrade will improve the sewer network and protect public health and safety by reducing pressure on the existing system to prevent potential sewer collapses upstream, reduce sewer spills in extreme wet weather and reduce system blockages.

Construction activities include:

  • Reconstruction of the sewer network
  • Upgrade of existing manholes
  • Decommissioning of existing sewer
  • Reinstatement of sewer following construction

This project will be completed in mid 2016.
