POLY piping had just gone high-tech with a Bundaberg Regional Council project to replace aging sewerage mains near the Bundaberg and Mater hospitals.

The $600,000 project involves replacing the sewerage rising main from the Tallon Bridge pump station through to the Bourbong St pump station during the scheduled four-week period.

It is the first time the council has used the chemical-inert 250mm poly pipe in such a large quantity, with the project involving workers laying 1.2km of piping.

The pipe is expected to last about 100 years, which in turn will provide a continued reliability of sewerage reticulation within the network.

Council water and waste water spokesman Alan Bush said the staff involved in the project hoped it would come in well under estimate.

He said heat-welding the pipes was "twice as quick" as the old system of laying the pipes, and it saved people from working in trenches.
