Popular Stories

Melbourne Water has alerted City of Whittlesea residents of upcoming road closures and detours in addition to current works for its Yan Yean to Bald Hill Pipeline alignment.

The construction of a 20-kilometre pipeline from the Yan Yean water treatment plant to the Bald Hill, Kalkallo tank site started in early May.

A Melbourne Water spokesperson said the new pipeline was being constructed ‘to meet growing demand for water in the northern and western suburbs of greater Melbourne and to support development in the planned growth area’.
