Prospect South to Macarthur (ProMac)

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Under the ProMac project we are building new drinking water pipelines and infrastructure between Prospect South and Macarthur as part of Sydney Water's long-term plan to extend the city’s water capacity and supply.

ProMac will upgrade our existing water reservoirs at Liverpool, Cecil Park and Currans Hill as well as build two new reservoirs at Oran Park. This will allow for an extra 100 Megalitres of additional reservoir capacity in Western Sydney. That’s the equivalent of about 50 Olympic-sized swimming pools!

We’re also building 15 km of additional pipework, three pumping stations and upgrading our existing network to ensure growing communities in South Western Sydney have access to clean drinking water.

Sydney Water is investing in new infrastructure that will support the growing, dynamic South Western Sydney.

ProMac will help Sydney Water deliver on its vision of creating a better life with world-class water services.

    As part of the Prospect to Macarthur (ProMac) project we are building a new drinking water pipeline between the Sugarloaf Pump Station in Menangle Park and the Narellan South Reservoir in Mount Annan, to provide drinking water services for 84,000 new homes in the South West Growth Area and Western Sydney Aerotropolis Growth Area.

    We plan to start work inside Sugarloaf Pump Station on Monday 10 January 2022 to install a new water main. Please see map for the location of work.

    Traffic changes

    During the installation and removal of the temporary monitoring devices beside Menangle Road, we will maintain one lane of traffic on a stop-go arrangement. Traffic control will be in place to safely assist motorists around our work area.

    There will be a higher volume of heavy traffic movements on Menangle Road as pipe and machinery is delivered to the Sugarloaf Pumping Station site. For the safety of motorists and workers, the speed limit on Menangle Road will be temporarily reduced to 60km an hour for some works, and 40 km an hour when workers are removing the vibration monitoring devices.

    Location of Work

    The health and wellbeing of Sydney Water crews are our top priority. All crews are adhering to testing, social distancing, and mask wearing requirements.

  • First early works connection completed for Mount Annan to Sugarloaf water main

    Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

    On Saturday 30 October, the first connection was made between the newly completed pipeline in William Howe Regional Park, and the existing network which feeds into the Narellan South Reservoir in Mount Annan. There will be multiple points of connection following this event, with the next to occur in just over two weeks time.

    To complete the connection, Sydney Water shutdown the reservoir for 24 hours from 7 am on Saturday. This involved closing the valves and flushing water from the existing main. The connection was made without affecting the water supply for Sydney Water customers. It took one hour for the existing capped end to be sawed open, with an additional 4 hours spent welding a new flanged rim to the existing end. The final fitting of the new pipeline was then lifted into position and bolted to the existing main.

    The ProMac team has kept the Mount Annan community up to date with the progress of works in William Howe Regional Park. Prior to the connection works commencing, the 12 properties within 100 metres of the works were doorknocked so the team could explain the proposed activities and answer any questions.

    This area of pipeline is just one of 18 packages of work within the Prospect to Macarthur (ProMac) program. To date, our contractor Vaughan Civil has installed around 50 percent of the 4,379m pipeline in Menangle Park, William Howe Regional Park and Australian Botanic Garden in Mount Annan.

    Welding the flanged rim onto the existing pipeline after the capped end was sawed open. The newly installed pipeline is located bottom left.


    Wiping the welded flanged rim with cleaning solution prior to connection of the existing and new pipeline.
