Currans Hill - site activity to begin at Currans Hill Reservoir, Tuesday 8 February 2022
As part of the Prospect to Macarthur (ProMac) project we are building a new drinking water pipeline between the Narellan South Reservoir in Mount Annan and the Sugarloaf Pump Station in Menangle Park, to provide drinking water services for 84,000 new homes in the South West Growth Area and Western Sydney Aerotropolis Growth Area.
We are also replacing the reservoir in Currans Hill so that it can reliably supply water to the community for decades to come (please see map). We plan to start establishing site facilities to support the dismantling of the existing reservoir from Tuesday 8 February 2022, with construction of the new reservoir to commence April 2022, weather permitting.
This work will involve:
- establishing a site office
- using elevated work platforms to dismantle the tank in sections
- lifting sections of panels with the use of a crane
- transporting components that can’t be re-used or recycled offsite by truck.
All workers will park within the Sydney Water site.
Construction traffic and impacts
There will be an increase in construction traffic around Currans Hill during our work. Residents can expect to see truck movements on Turner Road, Ascot Drive and Manooka Road.
Our work hours
- 7 am to 6 pm Monday to Friday
- 8 am to 1 pm Saturday.
The health and wellbeing of Sydney Water crews are our top priority. All crews are adhering to testing, social distancing, and mask wearing requirements.
Members of the public can rest easy knowing that Sydney Water's front line crews are authorised to work safely to continue delivering these essential services for their communities.
We know our work can be disruptive, so we’ll make every effort to reduce any impact this work may have on you. Thank you for your cooperation during this essential work.
