Waste and water company Veolia is continuing infrastructure upgrades in Sydney’s North West, as part of a project by Sydney Water which aims to cater to projected population growth and new housing developments.
Veolia recently completed work on Sydney Water’s North West Growth Centre (NWGC) Riverstone Wastewater Package 2, Trenchless Australasia reported in January.
They have previously completed work on a new drinking reservoir, recycled water and wastewater pipelines in Sydney’s North West.
Sydney Water’s North West Growth Centre (NWGC) project aims to service the growing population of Australia’s largest city, and includes the Riverstone and Alex Avenue Precincts.
Package 1, which has now been completed, included the construction of a new drinking reservoir and about 23 km of drinking water, recycled water and wastewater pipelines.
The completed package provided new services in the Riverstone and Alex Avenue Precincts, including a 40 million litre drinking water reservoir, drinking water pipelines for the new precincts and a wastewater pipeline for the Alex Avenue precinct.
Packages 2 and 3A of the NWGC project commenced in early 2013, and included the installation of three wastewater lead-ins in Riverstone.
The next stage of the NWGC project is expected to be completed by mid-2018, and includes new water and wastewater services in Vineyard, Riverstone East, Riverstone West, North Kellyville, Box Hill and various other areas.
