Local businesses are set to benefit from another round of State Government-funded infrastructure upgrades, with installation of infill sewerage taking place along two streets in Halifax Business Park.
About 35 properties that were part of the original subdivision of Halifax Business Park along Halifax Drive and McCombe Road are in the process of being connected to the central wastewater system for the first time.
With no provision made for sewerage during development more than 30 years ago, property owners installed septic tanks and leach drains for wastewater.
“Providing the right environment is crucial to support business growth and attract investment in order to support jobs,” SWDC chief executive officer Mellisa Teede said.
“The infill sewerage project, which is being managed by the City of Bunbury, follows a number of improvements to the light industrial area. Businesses are benefiting from a closed-circuit television system and a new turning lane that improves an entrance into Halifax.”
The infill sewerage is being delivered as part of a wider enhancement project made possible with $3 million from the State Government and coordinated by SWDC.
The initiative aims to promote long-term investment and growth by improving security, safety, access and infrastructure in the precinct.
