​Melbourne Water is undertaking sewer upgrade works on Douglas Parade as part of the Williamstown main sewer rehabilitation project.

Works along this section of the sewer will start in late 2017.


We will access a number of manholes along Douglas Parade for the works. Please see map below for approximate locations:



Project stages
Stage Timing Status 
Stage 1 - modifying the existing manhole Mid 2017 Complete
Stage 2 - relining the sewer pipe Late 2017  
Stage 3 - upgrading the manhole and reinstatement Early to mid 2018  

Traffic and access changes

As the majority of the manholes are located in the roadway, we will need to temporarily change traffic and access conditions along Douglas Parade and some connecting streets. 

More information about traffic impacts for stage 2 and 3 works will be provided closer to the start of works.
