Oran Park Reservoirs - Extended working hours

Sydney Water is working to expand our network to meet increased demands from growth in South West Sydney, ensuring our existing and future customers continue to have reliable access to clean drinking water.

As part of the Prospect to Macarthur (ProMac) program we are building two new water reservoirs in Oran Park to provide drinking water services for 84,000 new homes in the South West Growth Area, Western Sydney Aerotropolis Growth Area, Liverpool CBD and Menangle Park.

Upcoming work

Our contractor CB&I Australia are commencing construction of two 24ML steel reservoirs at Oran Park. To meet critical project milestones, we will be working extended weekend hours between Saturday 2 December 2023 and Sunday 25 February 2024 (inclusive). In addition to our standard work hours, this will involve working between 8am and 6pm Saturday and Sunday, weather permitting.

Standard work hours

 7am to 6pm Monday to Friday

 8am to 1pm Saturday. We will not work on Public Holidays.

This work will involve:

 Operation of plant and equipment to support construction of the two steel reservoirs

 Use of welding equipment, hand and power tools to fabricate steel reservoirs

 Crane lifts

Construction traffic and impacts

Light and heavy vehicles will continue to enter and exit the site via access off The Northern Road.

Use of the Southern Access Road off Brundson Road will be avoided during out of hours work where practical.

Parking of light and heavy vehicles will be confined to the construction site.

What you need to know

We know our work can be disruptive, so we’ll make every effort to reduce impact by:

 Switching vehicles and machinery off when not in use

 Placing operating plant or equipment away from the southern section of the site where possible

 Prioritise higher noise emitting activities during normal hours wherever practical

Construction works on the Oran Park site will not occur between Thursday 21 December 2023 through to Tuesday 2 January 2024.
