Welcome to the MRM to North Western Sewer Connection Project Community Feedback Survey

Melbourne Water is building a new 1.2 kilometre sewer to connect the Maribyrnong River Main (MRM) sewer in Avondale Heights, to the North Western Sewer in Maidstone, which transports wastewater to the Western Treatment Plant in Werribee. The sewer will connect to the MRM on the northern side of the Maribyrnong River, crossing the river via a new bridge, with a buried pipe to be constructed from Medway Golf Club to Hampstead Road.

The new sewer will be constructed by a tunnel boring machine (TBM) and open-cut trenching methods. Melbourne Water’s construction contractor, Safety Focused Performance Joint Venture (SFPJV) has been carrying out detailed design since late last year, and is now preparing for construction. The project is expected to take two years to complete.

Melbourne Water is seeking your feedback about your experience so far, and any concerns you may have. Evaluation Solutions, an independent research company, has been engaged to carry out a survey of the local community. The survey is anonymous, and participation is voluntary, however your opinions are valued and we encourage you to provide your feedback.
