Kemps Creek - cathodic protection installation
We are installing 26 cathodic protection pits and test points along the verge of Cross Street and Western Road. Cathodic protection is a system used to extend the life of the steel water main by minimising corrosion of the pipe. This requires installing sacrificial metals (anodes) alongside the pipeline which corrode at a faster rate than the steel main. These anodes are attached to the pipe with cables which lead up to an above-ground test point mounted on a pole and a cabinet (see image below).
The work will be happening in localised areas between Monday 11 October and Saturday 30 October 2021, weather permitting.
During the works there will be changes to traffic conditions on Cross Street and Western Road. Lane closures and traffic control will be in place to safely assist motorists around our work areas. Please see map below for location of work.
