The water and sewerage services provider recently finished digging more than 100 metres under Princes Way and the railway line to facilitate a new pipeline.
The completion of the dig completed the second of three stages of the upgrade, according to Gippsland Water communications manager Paul Clark.
“This investment allows for future development of [Warragul, including] fast-growing areas to the west and south of [the town],” he added in a media release.
“Previously un-sewered properties close to the Warragul CBD will also be serviced.”
The new sewer main means Gippsland Water is able to decommission two pump stations to the west of Warragul.
The next major works will be conducted on Howitt Street, expected to be completed by the end of March. The construction of 4km of new underground sewer is expected to be finished by June. Traffic and parking disruptions during this time are expected.
