The pipeline is the second stage of the Beaudesert Water Supply Upgrade, the long-term water supply solution for the Scenic Rim, supporting continued population and economic growth.
The bulk water pipeline includes a three-kilometre section which will connect the Flagstone development area and the SEQ Water Grid pipeline network. A further 24-kilometre bulk water pipeline will be constructed to deliver water to the recently completed Helen St Storage Reservoirs in Beaudesert.
The new pipeline will be predominantly within existing rural road reserve and is not expected to significantly impact on farms or businesses along the proposed alignment.
Early investigative works will commence this month to provide our designers with additional information for the pipeline design.
Construction of the pipeline is on track for commencement from mid - 2021.
Comdain has commenced early works for the pipeline. These early investigative works include geotechnical borehole drilling, service location and potholing. Early investigative works may also include aerial and ground surveying. Comdain started early investigative work at the most northerly point of the pipeline and are working south over a number of weeks.
The early works are expected to by completed by May, subject to weather and other unforseen circumstances. Comdain's work hours are from 7am until 5pm, Monday to Friday.
The South West Pipeline will run from Bushman Drive in the North to Beaudesert in the South. It will be contained within the road reserves of Bushland Road, Dennis Road, Cedar Grove Road, Cedar Pocket Road, Undullah Road, Brooklands Road, Allan Creek Road, Bromelton House Road and road reserves east of the South Logan River crossing.
