  • Temporary water supply interruption

    Temporary water supply interruption corner Norfolk St & Marine Terrace

    Monday 9 November 1-3pm



    What is happening?

    As part of our ongoing commitment to future-proof Fremantle’s water supply, DM Civil, on behalf of Water Corporation, is renewing the ageing water pipes as part of the Pipes for Fremantle 2020 project.

    As part of construction work to transfer the property service to the new water main, you will experience a temporary water supply interruption.


    When is this happening? 

    A temporary water supply interruption will impact your property from 1pm to 3pm on Monday 9 November.

    Before the Water Supply Interruption

    The main tap at the water meter will be turned off during these works. If you have an electric hot water system we recommend you turn off its power supply. This is to protect your water-using appliances, such as coffee machines. Without your meter turned off, air may enter the water pipes, which can cause damage to these appliances.

    Here are some handy tips to prepare:

    • Fill kettles and store some drinking water in the fridge.
    • Use showers or baths before the water supply is interrupted.
    • Store water in buckets or other large containers to flush the toilet.

    During the Water Supply Interruption

    • Toilet cisterns will need to be refilled from a bucket.
    • Do not use automatic dishwashers or washing machines.

    After the Water Supply Interruption

    Once we have completed the work, the main tap at your water meter will be turned back on, Run your inside taps for a minute to remove any air that may be trapped in the pipes before turning your electric hot water system power supply back on. Make sure you collect any running water and use it to water your garden or pot plan.

    Discoloured Water

    This work may result in the water having a discoloured appearance. If this occurs, the water is still safe to drink. If you experience discoloured water:

    1. Run the outside garden tap at the front of your property for a few minutes, until the water clears.

    2. Repeat the step above for an outside tap at rear for your property.

    3. Call us on 13 13 75 if the water does not clear.

    4. Do not use washing machines, dishwashers or other water-using appliances until the water is clear.

    For any prolonged water supply issues please call Water Corporation’s 24 Hour Faults, Emergencies and Security Line on 13 13 75.


    What are the impacts of this work?

    You will notice activity in the area and noise from the construction work.

    Please let us know if water supply is critical during this interruption period and we will endeavour to supply a temporary water solution.

    Water Corporation appreciates this work will cause inconvenience to some customers and we thank you in advance for your cooperation.


    Who can I contact?

    If you have an enquiry or issue regarding the water outage, please contact Tessa McGrath,  DM Civil Project Engineer, on 0438 364 426. 

    For general enquiries or if you have any special circumstances we need to be aware of before this essential work starts, please call Community Engagement on 9420 2985 available weekdays during business hours. Alternatively, email pipesforperth@watercorporation.com.au

    To report a fault, emergency or security issue, please call 13 13 75 (available 24 hours).

    Full intersection closure Henry Street and Marine Terrace, 2 November

    Partial closure Cliff Street and Marine Terrace, 3 November


    Thank you for your patience and understanding as essential construction work in Fremantle progresses to upgrade the stormwater drainage network and renew ageing water pipes.

    This work will help secure the area’s water supply for decades to come and improve Fremantle’s stormwater capacity and prevent flooding and damage in the future.

    What is happening?

    Fremantle Drainage:

    The partial Phillimore Street closure will see Phillimore Street eastbound traffic lanes open and westbound traffic use the Short Street and Pakenham Street detour. This partial road closure will finish in mid-November 2020. For more, please view the traffic flow map below.

    Preliminary investigation work will take place along Cliff Street within the Fremantle Port Authority in mid-November, we will update you soon on these timings.

    Pipes for Fremantle:

    As part of construction work to connect the new water pipe to the existing water network the full closure of the Henry Street and Marine Terrace intersection and the partial closure of the entrance to Cliff Street from Marine Terrace is required.

    The Henry Street and Marine Terrace intersection will be fully closed on Monday 2 November from 7am to 5pm.

    The entrance to Cliff Street from Marine Terrace will be partially closed on Tuesday 3 November from 7am to 5pm. Traffic can still enter Cliff street via the other lane. 

    Construction work on the last two streets is progressing. Work on Norfolk Street is still on schedule to be completed by mid-November and on Marine Terrace by late November.

    The full reinstatement of High Street is planned to take place late November – we will continue to keep you updated regarding the duration and timing of this work.

    Please note, the Mouat Street and Marine Terrace intersection will no longer be closed on Tuesday 3 November.

    How will this upcoming work impact me?

    During the full closure of the Henry Street and Marine Terrace intersection, the previously closed lane on Marine Terrace between Mouat Street and Henry Street will be reopened. This will allow traffic to detour down Croke Street and head either direction on Marine Terrace from the Mouat Street intersection. 

    During the partial closure of Cliff Street, one lane will remain open to allow traffic to continue to flow from Marine Terrace to Cliff Street. This closure is expected to have minimal impact due to the current traffic management already in place.

    Please speak to traffic controllers on site if you need any clarity on the traffic management in place.


    We understand this essential work will impact nearby residents and businesses and apologise for the disruption. We will work closely with you to minimise disruption as much as possible.

    Traffic impacts:

    Traffic management will be in place throughout the duration of the project. Please see a list of ongoing traffic implications below:

    As pipe renewal construction work progresses on Norfolk Street traffic light signals at the South Terrace, Norfolk Street and Parry Street intersection will need to change. The traffic signal change is required to prevent non-local traffic entering Norfolk Street while construction work progresses.

    This change allows for Norfolk Street to remain open to local traffic only.


    When is this happening? 

    Traffic light signal changes at the South Terrace, Norfolk Street and Parry Street intersection will be in place 24/7 from 7am Monday 19 October to mid-November

    We will keep you informed as to when exactly the traffic signal will revert back to normal.


    How will this impact me?

    The change will stop traffic turning left off South Terrace onto Norfolk Street or going straight through from Parry Street. The Parry Street lights will also become left turn only. 

    Entry onto Norfolk Street will be from Norfolk Lane with the westbound lane of Norfolk Street to remain open to allow one-way traffic. 


    Local and delivery access will be maintained and footpaths and driveways will not be impacted. Please speak to traffic controllers onsite if clarity is required. For more information, please view the traffic flow map overleaf.


    We understand this essential work will impact nearby residents and businesses and apologise for the disruption. We will work closely with you to minimise disruption as much as possible.

    Nairn Street partial road closure near Pakenham Street

    7am Monday 19 October to 5pm Tuesday 20 October

    Thank you for your patience and understanding as essential construction work in Fremantle progresses to renew ageing water pipes and help secure the area’s water supply for decades to come.


    What is happening?

    As part of the final decommissioning work, DM Civil on behalf of Water Corporation is required to close a small section of Nairn Street near the Pakenham Street intersection.


    When is this happening? 

    Around 15 metres of road along Nairn Street, near the Pakenham Street and Nairn Street intersection, will be closed from 7am Monday 19 October to 5pm Tuesday 20 October.

    This work marks the end of pipe renewal work on Nairn Street.


    How will this impact me?

    During decommissioning work, construction fencing will be erected around the small work area near the Pakenham Street and Nairn Street intersection.

    This means access onto Nairn Street from Pakenham Street will be closed with entry to Nairn Street via Collie Street only.

    However, local traffic can exit driveways to either Pakenham or Collie Street. For more information, view the traffic flow map overleaf.

    Traffic management will be in place and access to footpaths will be maintained. 

    We understand this essential work is impactful and apologise for the disruption. We will work closely with you to minimise disruption as much as possible.
