The WATER CORPORATION has advised that the work on the Fremantle water pipes in the inner city this year will be completed before Christmas and that several streets have been deleted from the initial plan, so below the details.

Project timeline

Previously we informed you work will be completed by late 2019. During our discussions many businesses raised concerns about work continuing and impacting trade during the summer months. To ensure our construction work is completed before the busy Christmas and summertime retail period, we have reduced the number of streets originally planned for renewal.

Streets for renewal include:

Bannister Street, between Pakenham Street to Market Street.
Collie Street, between Marine Terrace and South Terrace.
Essex Lane, between Collie Street and Essex Street.
Essex Street, between Marine Terrace and South Terrace.
High Street, between Little High Street and Market Street.
Leake Street, between Pakenham Street and Market Street.
Marine Terrace, between Cliff Street and Suffolk Street, and Howard Street and Price Street.
Market Street, between High Street and Bannister Street.
Nairn Street, between Pakenham Street and Market Street.
Norfolk Street, between Marine Terrace and South Terrace.
Pakenham Street, between Collie Street and Leake Street.
South Terrace, between Bannister Street and Norfolk Street.
We estimate this construction work will be completed between June and November 2019.

Streets no longer included in this package of work:

Henry Street, between Marine Terrace and Phillimore Street.
Pakenham Street, Leake Street to Phillimore Street.
Phillimore Street, between Henry Street and Pakenham Street.
Short Street, between Pakenham Street and Market Street.
Renewal of the water mains on these streets will be completed at a later date.

Anyone planning any significant outdoor events in the Fremantle CBD between April and December this year should be aware that the Watercorporation is planning major works in many streets in that period.

Watercorporation are going to renew 4.2 kilometres of water mains pipes in these streets: Market, High, South Tce, Essex, Leake, Marine Tce, Norfolk, Nairn, Phillimore, Pakenham, Short, Henry, Bannister.

This might well have an impact on traffic flow around town and for some businesses.
