CBD Facilities Upgrade

Townsville City Council


The Townsville City Council’s water and sewerage infrastructure in the CBD is an aging asset that is not meeting the serviceability requirements of the community. The objective of the project was to upgrade the existing infrastructure to meet current standards and provide serviceability into 2050.

The CBD Utilities Project required the Construction Manager to execute approximately 14.6 km of water and sewer mains whilst maintaining the network functionality of the CBD water and sewer reticulation systems. This requires extensive community and stakeholder consultation as a result of the traffic management and network controls required for the construction to occur.
