Wentworth to Broken Hill Pipeline

Wentworth to Broken Hill Pipeline

Broken Hill pipeline

Work has started on the 270km Wentworth to Broken Hill (W2BH) Pipeline that will provide a long-term secure water supply for Broken Hill.

A consortium of John Holland, MPC Group and TRILITY have been appointed to design, construct, operate and maintain the Wentworth to Broken Hill Pipeline. The pipeline will be completed and ready for water by December 2018.

The pipeline will supply up to 37.4 megalitres of a peak daily demand of raw water to Essential Water, the local water provider in Broken Hill. Essential Water will continue to retain responsibility for water treatment and water distribution to its customers.

The project will bring immediate benefits to both the Wentworth and Broken Hill communities through more than 150 local jobs as well as the sourcing of project materials and other support logistics from regional providers.
