Bairnsdale to Eagle Point water main upgrade

On-site work has commenced to upgrade approximately one kilometre of the main water supply pipeline between Bairnsdale and Eagle Point, along the Paynesville Road.

This upgrade will boost the reliability and efficiency of the local water supply network well into the future. This project is scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2021 and is a part of our capital works program – ensuring communities across the region receive high quality, reliable water services well into the future.

Traffic management measures will be implemented along the affected stretch of the Paynesville Road, so machinery associated with the works can operate safely. Motorists using this part of the highway should also allow extra time for their journey for the period of the project.

East Gippsland Water’s Managing Director, Steve McKenzie, said “We appreciate that Paynesville Road is a main route and every effort will be made to minimise inconvenience to residents and travellers while the upgrade work is underway.”   

Anyone with queries about the water main upgrade should contact East Gippsland Water’s Bairnsdale office on 1800 671 841.
