The UEA Trenchless Division has been awarded a number of trenchless crossings as part of the Sydney Water’s South West Growth Centre project. This project consists of the installation and commissioning of approximately 12Km of Sewerage mains to service the suburbs of East and North Leppington as well as the construction of two pump stations.
- 5 x HDD crossings of 355mm PE
- 1 x 300 metre HDD installation of 500mm PE
- 4 x micro tunnelled installations
- 3 x guided boring/thrust bore installations
The South West Growth Centre is approximately 17,000 hectares in size and includes parts of the Liverpool, Camden and Campbelltown local government areas. It is divided into 18 Precincts that are being progressively released for planning and rezoned for sustainable urban development. The South West Growth Centre will be supported by a Major Centre at Leppington and be serviced by the new South West Rail Link. It will contain about 110,000 new dwellings for some 300,000 residents — almost the same population as Canberra.
Collectively, these Precincts have potential for 42,560 homes to accommodate approximately 130,200 residents and capacity for 22,120 jobs.
UEA’s programme of works is due to commence mid September 2014 and programmed to complete mid November 2014.
