New gas pipeline on track for winter

Scheduled for completion mid-2015, the $2.9 million Torquay Gas Pipeline will significantly eliminate the risk of supply interruptions during peak winter periods and help meet new connection growth in the areas.

With thousands of new homes being built in Armstrong Creek, Torquay and Jan Juc (where we continue to actively work with various clients in this area), there has been a strong up-take of gas for general heating, cooking and hot water systems. 

The new 11 kilometre pipeline will help secure the supply of gas to the residents during peak winter periods and provide capacity for up to an expected 5,000 additional homes in Torquay and Jan Juc.

Our Natural and Cultural Heritage teams comprising Botanists, Zoologists and Archaeologists worked closely with AusNet Services and the construction team throughout the planning and approvals process for the project.

We provided on site direction for the identification of appropriate drill holes to ensure remnant native vegetation and other ecological values, together with areas of Aboriginal Cultural Heritage sensitivity were avoided and suitable locations were identified for construction.

Our specialist team is continuing to provide support on this important project during construction works to avoid impacts to ecological and cultural heritage values by micro-siting the construction footprint. 

Ecology and Heritage Partners' continues to work in partnership with the pipeline industry in the delivery of important infrastructure projects throughout Australia. View our other pipeline infrastructure project examples.
