Key Facts

Project: Gas Mains Replacement Program - Melbourne, Victoria

Client: APA Group

Location: Alphington, Clifton Hill and Fitzroy North, Victoria

Duration: March 2014 - 2015




The scope of work includes the insertion of high pressure polyethylene gas mains into existing low pressure cast iron mains in Alphington, Clifton Hill and Fitzroy North areas.

The project covers approximately 27 km of mains insertion and the replacement of service connections for over 2,000 domestic, commercial and industrial customers.

The replacement work presents significant challenges including:

  • The need for detailed planning to notify customers and minimize supply disruptions;
  • The need to minimize damage to customer property / underground utilities and nature strips whilst undertaking the work;
  • The need to maintain public access and safety around work sites typically located in suburban streets and reserves;
  • Management of re-instatement to meet the requirements of property owners and local councils.

Electrix has successfully established a gas services capability in Australia for this type of work and we were pleased to be awarded further project work in Victoria. Our strong focus on safety, supervision, project management and contract management styles are exceeding APA program requirements.
