The SEQ Water Grid: Ashgrove to Enoggera Pipeline Upgrade involves building two new sections of underground pipeline and decommissioning our existing water pipeline along Wardell Street.

The $4.2M upgrade will be conducted in three stages:

  • install a new water pipeline link between Bridge Street and Victoria Street, Ashgrove
  • install a new water pipeline between Lloyd Street, Alderley and Pickering Street, Enoggera
  • decommission our existing water pipeline along Wardell Street.

The upgrade will take about nine months and once complete, the new pipeline will play a key role in supplying a reliable drinking water supply to more than 50,000 local consumers.
