Water Corporation Pipes for Perth - Beaufort Street 2022

In 2022, Water Corporation will renew 2.1km of cast iron water pipeline along Beaufort Street, between Walcott Street, Mt Lawley and Dundas Road, Inglewood in the City of Stirling. Follow project

The City is supporting Water Corporation in the delivery of 2.1kms of new water main on Beaufort Street, between Walcott Street, Mt Lawley and Dundas Road in Inglewood. Stage Two of Water Corporation’s Pipes for Perth works on Beaufort Street in Mount Lawley between First Avenue and Central Avenue will commence early July and run until the end of August.

To register for project updates, visit the Water Corporation website.


What exactly will be taking place?

The Water Corporation will be replacing cast iron pipes that are over 100 years old with PVC. Works will be carried out in a staged approach within the Beaufort Street northbound traffic lanes, which will be closed to road users during construction. The Water Corporation is working with the City of Stirling, Main Roads and the Public Transport Authority on important project detail including traffic management.

Why does the northbound traffic lane need to be closed?

The width of the road does not allow for safe contra-flow traffic arrangements, meaning the northbound lane will be closed and traffic will be detoured in stages. 

How will the works be staged?

There will be three stages of works (Walcott Street to First Avenue, First Avenue to Central Avenue and Central Avenue to Dundas Road). Each stage will take about 8 weeks to complete with two crews per stage.  The order of staging is yet to be determined.

How long will the works take?

Construction will take place from May 2022 to October/November 2022.

How will businesses be supported during this time?

Water Corporation will work closely with the local business community leading up and during construction to mitigate impacts, where practically possible.
