    38. 38. Reinstatement example<br />
    39. 39. Victoria St, Brunswick: dowling of concrete road pavement, extended the width of trench to bluestone, avoided the bluestone, bluestone will be reinstated. <br />

    45. 45. YVW Aims<br />Replace the water main;<br />Minimise impact to the community;<br />Minimise community cost;<br />Complete works to council satisfaction;<br />Complete work in a safe manner<br />Complete permanent reinstatement within 6 weeks;<br />Avoid working in recently reinstated road.<br />
    46. 46. YVW drivers<br />Reinstatement accounts for about 30% of our costs; <br />Happy to work towards least community cost;<br />Incentive to minimise these costs;<br />Hoping to be more pro-active with water main renewals. Currently not getting many bursts so few high priority mains;<br />Currently trying to combine water main renewals with road resurfacing program: adapting our program with Councils, could councils adapt their program to ours?<br />
    47. 47. Concerns<br />Generally come to agreement with council when water main is on the edge of road pavement;<br />Difference of opinion arise when YVW main is in the centre of a lane or in the middle of the street;<br />Requests sometimes include reinstatement beyond Auspecguidelines<br />YVW’s understanding of reinstatement requirements:<br />the importance of a straight cut, <br />not having a join where the wheel will run<br />council concern when the road is new and YVW puts a trench through it<br />importance of preventing water ingress.<br />Road management clause: “return the road back to its existing condition prior to the works” unclear what exactly this means. <br />
    48. 48. Trench reinstatement design<br />
    49. 49. Areas to work on with council<br />Keep working on the relationship to get best outcome for the community; Common aim is a happy customer<br />Better guidelines about reasonable extent of reinstatement: Previous attempts to build upon, perhaps revisit work completed in 2006;<br />Ensuring water main renewals and roadworks programs align as much as possible;<br />Maintaining the quality of our reinstatement<br />Any benefits from working with MAV?<br />Closer working with councils in major commercial high profile areas <br />Happy to receive feedback from council so that we can learn and improve. <br />Education on good road repair practices and council issues <br />
