Water Trunk Main - Camden River Bridge

Cost: $360,000

Contractor: Coastal Works

Client: Port Macquarie Hastings Council

Client Referee: Steve Mizzi

Coastal Works was contracted by Port Macquarie Hastings Council to construct an additional water trunk main over the Camden Haven River at Kendall. The existing asbestos water main under the bridge had reached to end of its service life and was prone to many breaks and leaks.

The work was awarded as a design and construct contract with Coastal Works combining all of the trades and services to produce a new pipeline connected to the western edge of the bridge, requiring specialised scaffolding to allow the crew to attach the brackets and pipe.

Coastal Works worked with the local community to lessen the traffic delays during peak times but still achieve the completion date for the contract to ensure the Kendall and surrounding community had a secure water supply.
