Construction of the Recycled Water Rising Main pipeline has commenced under Phase 2 of the Parkes Recycled Water Scheme. The works will also include the construction of pump stations and a reservoir. The purple-pipeline scheme will deliver high quality recycled water to irrigate selected parks and sporting fields around town.
NASH STREET RAIL CROSSING
Underboring works will be undertaken at the Nash Street rail crossing, on the western entrance to Harrison Park. Works will be scheduled in June.
Roads will remain open during these works, however variable speed limits will be enforced. Please allow for delays if travelling past Harrison Park, and follow instructions from traffic controllers.

- Nash Street near Field Road - ongoing activity for the construction of the Recycled Water Reservoir and Pump Station

Hydrostatic testing will be completed along the pipeline routes in the coming weeks. Any disruptions will be localised and for short duration. Traffic controllers will direct motorists as required.
