Award-winning bypass supercharges Melbourne’s wastewater management
Rehabilitation of the North Yarra Main Deviation required the design, engineering and installation of a new bypass system to carry up to 20 per cent of Melbourne’s wastewater.
To achieve this, the bypass had to be carefully planned – running along traffic-heavy Hyde Street, through the West Gate Bridge Memorial Park, over high-pressure gas lines and under high-voltage power lines.
Welltech’s leading Bypass Division specialists not only overcame these challenges, but used innovative solutions to turn potential obstacles into the system’s greatest strengths. The team transformed an existing manhole into a temporary wet well, installing two huge Hidrostal pumps at a depth of 18m, hanging from an engineered lifting beam on the surface.
