The Water Corporation is replacing approximately 700 metres of ageing water pipes between Mount Eliza Reservoir and Bellevue Terrace in Kings Park.

This is a critical Water Corporation infrastructure project which involves the main water supply to Perth city. The works will require the removal of some trees within the alignment of where the pipes are being replaced; road closures, exclusion of Parkland areas and paths, and will result in the noise and movement of plants and equipment.

Stage 1: tunneling is planned for early October. This will take approximately 6 weeks to complete.
Stage 2: work has commenced and will take approximately two months to complete.

The majority of work will be completed Monday to Friday between 7am and 5pm with Saturday work between 7am and 5pm as required.

Visitors to Kings Park utilising Fraser Avenue and Kattidj Close may notice an increase in activity and noise along the pipeline route from machinery and trucks as they transport materials to and from the work site.

  • The Kings Park Administration Building carpark is closed between 25 November - 8 December 2022. Pedestrian access to the building is via the south side path.
  • Access to the Biodiversity Conservation Centre remains closed. Traffic management will be in place during this time to safely direct pedestrians and vehicles around the site.
  • Fraser Avenue will remain open.

These works are part of the Water Corporation - Pipes for Perth project. Visit the Water Corporation website for more information.
