Pipe laying complete for 38km Toowoomba Pipeline ...

November 12, 2009

Infrastructure and Planning Minister Stirling Hinchliffe marked a major milestone for Toowoomba today as workers connected the last piece of pipe for the $187 million Toowoomba Pipeline project.

Mr Hinchliffe said pipe laying for the 38km project linking Wivenhoe Dam to Cressbrook Dam was completed almost two months ahead of schedule.

"This vital piece of infrastructure will provide the long-term water security Toowoomba needs to prosper," Mr Hinchliffe said.

"Construction of the pump station for the pipeline is also 70 per cent complete, and both remain on track to be operational and pumping water by January 2010.

"The pipeline connects to Wivenhoe Dam near the Esk water extraction tower, then follows local road reserves west through the Esk township. From there, it crosses a number of large rural properties and advances through Deongwar State Forest to connect to Cressbrook Dam.
