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.

Broken Hill pipeline

Please be aware and drive with care

As construction of the Wentworth to Broken Hill Pipeline moves along the Silver City Highway, motorists are asked to please be aware and drive with care.

Construction activities between Broken Hill and Wentworth, combined with dry ground conditions and high winds, has the potential to increase dust and reduce visibility.

Reduced speed limits, water carts to suppress dust and traffic management are in place on the Silver City Highway where work is taking place.

Please be aware of changes to road conditions and drive with care.
