Longvista sewer rising main

TasWater is in the process of replacing a 1.1 kilometre section of sewer rising main in Blackstone Heights.

Work on the project commenced in early November and is expected to take approximately 12 weeks, weather permitting.

The sewer main runs aong the rear boundary of a number of properties in Blackstone Road. It crosses Kelsey Road and then follows Blackstone Park Road to the Longvista Sewage Pump Station (SPS).

It is being replaced as part of the state-wide sewer renewals program following a number of reported failures in recent months.

TasWater has writtent to customers in the region advising them that the sewer main is being replaced.

While most of the work will be undertaken on private land, nearby residents may experience some impacts relating to noise and visual amenity during the construction period.

Residents are advised that TasWater will be closing Kelsey Road between 7am and 6pm on Tuesday, 1 December to enable work to continue. There is a potential for the closure to continue into Wednesday, 2 December.

While TasWater has initially planned to drill under Kelsey Road, ground conditions have made drilling impossible - hence the need for 'open trenching' and a full road closure.

TasWater apologises for any inconvenience the closure may cause and thanks residents for their patience as these works are carried out.

Please note that TasWater has been working with Metro to ensure the 2 December closure will not impact on any of the bus services operating in the Kelsey Road area.

A number of different projects are currently being planned for the Blackstone Heights area with the aim of improving service delivery and reducing the risk of sewage spills and sewage overflows.

Work has already commenced on an upgrade of the Longvista Sewage Pump Station (SPS) and the completion of the sewer main replacement project will enable TasWater to finalise the SPS works.
