West Hoxton - traffic changes and upcoming interruptions to water supply

As part of the Prospect to Macarthur (ProMac) project we are upgrading the existing reservoirs at Liverpool and Cecil Park as well as building two new reservoirs at Oran Park to allow for a total of 100 ML of additional reservoir capacity.

We are also upgrading the existing water pumping station inside Prospect Reservoir to provide drinking water services for 84,000 new homes in the South West Growth Area and Western Sydney Aerotropolis Growth Area.

As part of these works, we will be installing an air valve on the corner of Twenty Fifth Avenue and Twenty Sixth Avenue in West Hoxton which will release any built-up air in the drinking water pipeline. This air valve will ensure the performance of the pipe is maintained. Works will begin on Monday 18 October 2021, expected to finish by the end of October 2021, weather permitting. There will be an interruption to water supply during the final stages of work. Residents will be notified before this occurs.

Work will involve:

• investigating and surveying the area

• digging in the council verge and road to install the valve

• restoration of impacted areas.

Traffic changes

During the works there will be changes to traffic conditions. A lane closure and traffic control will be in place to safely assist motorists around our work area. Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are advised to observe all project signage and traffic control directions during construction. Please see map for the location of work.

Our work hours

  • 7 am to 6 pm Monday to Friday
  • 8 am to 1 pm on Saturdays.
  • We will not work on Sundays or public holidays.
