Greening the pipeline
Spanning from the suburbs of Spotswood to Werribee – Greening the Pipeline aims to create a place where communities can connect, exercise and play.
Stretching 27km, the transformation of the disused sewer into a multi-recreational green space will:
- reduce urban heat island effect by increasing tree canopy and providing urban cooling outcomes for Melbourne’s growing population
- improve amenity via the Federation bike path upgrade – by linking the Wyndham (growth corridor) to Melbourne’s CBD
- incorporate efficient integrated water management for both recycled water and storm water harvesting to maximise our precious resource
This innovative program is being led by Melbourne Water, Wyndham City Council, VicRoads, City West Water and supported by Greening the West.
