The pipe, called the Clover Forcemain, will run along Dallas Road from Clover Point to Ogden Point, where it will connect to the Victoria cross-harbour undersea pipe.

Construction began in October, 2018 and is expected to take about two years to complete.

As of April, 2019, over 50 per cent — or 1.6 km — of the pipe has been installed. All construction activities for the Clover Forcemain are anticipated to be complete by summer 2020.

Following the pipe installation, the road will be re-paved. Clover Point Park has been re-seeded.
