Global Pipe supplied this project with HOBAS CC-GRP Jacking Pipe, OD1499 SN40,000, PN1 Jacking Pipe. Along with the supply of pipe, Global Pipe designed and supplied three HOBAS pre-fabricated Manholes.
The construction involved the installation of 700 meters of new sewer mains along Spencer Street in Melbourne’s CBD, between Little Lonsdale Street and Flinders Lane – one of Melbourne’s busiest city locations. The current sewer is approximately 100 years old and was already at capacity. The new second sewer pipe along Spencer Street will ensure essential infrastructure meets the forecasted growth in the city in years to come. Forecasts predict approximately 60,000 new apartments will be built in the CBD over the next 35 years, which includes approximately 14,000 apartments in the Spencer Street area.
