Haughton Pipeline Early Civil Works

Townsville City Council

Overview

Stage 1 of the Water Security Infrastructure programme comprises the duplication of pipeline from the Haughton Channel to Ross River Dam referred to as the Haughton Pipeline Duplication Project (HPDP). The new 1800mm diameter pipe will boost the water into the Townsville Ross River Dam from the Haughton channel, fed by the Burdekin Falls Dam irrigation system. The early civil works package involved clearing the route for the 36.5km pipeline.

Scope of Works

Our works involved clearing of vegetation, site preparation earthworks, access road construction, wash-down bays for environmental controls, cultural heritage monitoring, supply and installation of pipework, construction grids, permanent and temporary fencing.

Environmental Factors

Several environmental factors needed to be considered due t the location of the project and agricultural nature of the area These included:-

  • Biosecurity – spread of seed and weeds
  • Interaction with livestock and crops
  • Interaction with agricultural operations such as mustering and cane harvesting operations
  • Environmental factors and effects – including rain events, runoff, erosion and sediment control
  • Health and safety including working alongside high voltage powerlines, traffic, unexploded ordinance, flora and fauna hazards, falling objects
