Kemps Creek - testing and commissioning works

We have completed installation of the new water pipeline in Kemps Creek and are now continuing with testing and commissioning works. We need to pressure test the pipeline to ensure there are no leaks before connecting it to the existing network. During this final testing stage of the project we will be working in localised areas along the pipe’s alignment until Thursday 23 December 2021, weather permitting (please see map) .

This work will involve:

  • excavating small pits using specialist plant
  • backfilling the pits and temporarily restoring the impacted area
  • changes in local traffic.

Traffic changes

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.


We have temporarily restored disturbed areas to allow for continued access to the pipeline for testing and commissioning. When work is complete in December 2021, weather permitting, we will work with your local council to complete permanent restoration.

Our work hours

• 7 am to 6 pm Monday to Friday

• 8 am to 1 pm Saturday
