Relining Projects

MTS relining teams have relined approx 8kms of stormwater network for our  current council annual supply customers, pipe sizes have ranged from 150mm to 1375mm drains. Renewing each line involves the use of our drain cleaning, cctv, traffic and civil crews to get the drain and access points up to current standard and ensure another 50 to 80 years of service life for our customers.

Clean Fill now available!!

Clean fill (NATA tested) fill is now available for delivery to local fill sites. The fill is non structural and is accumulated at our depot in Mt Evelyn following a natural drying process as a result of Non destructive digging, Vacuum Loading and Drilling Mud disposal. The dirt can contain particles of kiln dried hardwood which breaks down the clay particles to create a good top layer over bulk fill. it also very good for bulk fill with no rubbish. **Delivery Charges may apply outside close local area** 

M.Tucker and Sons also can supply recycled topsoil per cubic meter.

Recently we opened a branch division of the business to councils and contractors that has been in development for a number of years. 

Company owner Mark Tucker has developed and achieved an EPA approved site for disposal of Drainage Maintenance waste, street sweepers, NDD and Drilling mud.

The facility is open to water boards, councils and contractors who require disposal of waste at an approved site.

The tip is a 24/7 all weather site under lights which has proved attractive for contractors working on freeway and rail upgrade projects.

Sewerage pump station renewal in difficult location.

Bayside city councils plumbing maintenance contractor was faced with an issue inside the council chambers courtyard in Sandringham. The buildings sewerage pumpwell had deteriorated to a point that it was leaking and also causing rubble to damage its twin pump system causing poor performance and surcharge. MTS was engaged by the councils maintenance contractor Campeyn to facilitate the renewal of the 3m deep well.

Problems faced:

  • Limited access due to an access hall way joining two buildings together 
  • Limited equipment access due to decking and building layout 
  • Pre cast concrete was not an option due to access restrictions 


  • Altered size of well to achieve spec requirements but fit access restrictions to facilitate installation.
  • Sourced a GRP well to suit and allow light weight equipment to be used 
  • All preliminary excavations were completed with NDD 55m from truck, this maximised efficiency and reduced mess from transport of spoil through the delicate court yard and hall way.

Sealing Sewer Main Branches.

We have been working with water authorities and water authority contractors to seal property connections with patches fibreglass and QUICKLOCK. Where developers are reconnecting new buildings to existing sewer mains, the old redundant branch is required to be sealed. Due to urbanisation access has often become difficult to excavate cap and seal. Patching provides an alternative solution for developers reducing impact to the surrounding environment and day to day operations of the public.
