Project 1: Belconnen trunk sewer augmentation

See our fact sheets on:

Project 1 includes the construction of ~2.4 kilometres of sewer pipe, a 170 metre pipe bridge that will support the new sewer over Ginninderra Creek and an odour control unit (OCU) at Latham North.

Project location

The map below shows the route of the proposed 2.4km pipeline between Copland Drive, Melba and Tillyard Drive, Flynn.


Odour control unit

The location of the odour control unit (OCU) for Project 1 is in north Latham on Ginninderra Drive, opposite Tillyard Drive (as seen on the map below). An artist’s impression of what the OCU will look like is also provided.



Building Finishes

Icon Water is still seeking feedback relating to how the OCU buildings will be finished. We use a range of different techniques to paint or finish our infrastructure ranging from graphic art through to simple painting. Icon Water would like to gather community feedback relating to preferences for the finishes on these structures. Below are some example finishes from other projects or that may be applied. Please send us an email, or talk to us on 6248 3111 (option 9) if you have any feedback about the building finishes.

Pipe bridge 

As part of the construction, a pipe bridge will be built across Ginninderra Creek. Below is an artist’s impression of how the pipe bridge might look. A schematic of the pipe bridge is also found below.

During the initial submission of the planning documentation for Project 1, feedback was received from the community requesting whether the pipe bridge can be modified to also support a pedestrian and bike path.

We performed an assessment of the possibility of the pipe bridge over Ginninderra Creek being upgraded to accommodate a pedestrian and bike path. Although a pedestrian and bike path would provide benefit to the local community, these upgrades were unfortunately cost prohibitive.
