Metro Vancouver is replacing the Central Park Water Main, which has been phased over several years and spans approximately 12 kilometres in the City of Burnaby and the City of New Westminster. The existing water main was built in the 1930s and is reaching the end of its service life. Once complete, the new water main will help ensure the continued delivery of clean, safe drinking water well into the future.
The Salisbury/18th Section of the Central Park Water Main is approximately three kilometres long. It will start at Elwell Street and head south to 10th Avenue, in the City of Burnaby.
Construction of this section is expected to take place from fall 2020 to spring 2023. Towards the end of the project, Metro Vancouver will return to connect the newly constructed water main to the existing drinking water system.
The Maywood Section was the first section of the Central Park Water Main and was completed in fall 2020. It starts at Patterson Avenue and extends until the intersection of Telford Avenue and Maywood Street. The third and last portion of the project is the Imperial Section, and it will be located along
Imperial Street, between Maywood Street and Telford Avenue, and Griffiths Avenue and Elwell Street.
