As part of preparation works before construction started on the Metro Tunnel Rail Station, John Holland engaged Adept Drainage to divert the existing steel water main on Albert Road, St Kilda so new infrastructure could be installed.
The project took place over four days
During the first two days, we used an open cutting technique to expose the existing installed water main. We did the cutting in two parts to minimise traffic disruption as the location was in a built-up area.
We chose a prefabricated OD257 MSCL Pipe (dog leg) as it was the most efficient way to divert the water main, given our time constraints.
On the third day, we installed the prefabricated pipe. We did this at night to minimise disruption because we had to shut down the existing water main while we connected the new pipe.
We used Gibault joints at both ends of the pipe to connect the existing water main to the new water main.
We successfully diverted the water main while minimising disruption. The project was completed on time and within budget and we lost no time due to injury.
CDC Plumbing engaged us to provide a water main renewal in West Melbourne.
Sunland contracted us to install PVC piping and construct six manholes.
We provided sewer diversion services as part of Northland’s redevelopment project.
