Stagpole St water works underway

Date published: 7 February 2022

Good progress is being made on a $2.1 million project to replace water infrastructure in Stagpole St in West End.

Local business CivilPlus Constructions is undertaking the project, which will see about 1.3kms of new pipeline installed.

Townsville Mayor Jenny Hill said Council was making a significant investment in the city’s water infrastructure and services.

“This investment ensures that as Townsville continues to grow, it has a secure and reliable water supply,” Cr Hill said.

“It also supports our local economy by providing ongoing work to businesses such as CivilPlus Construction, and the 10 jobs supported by this project alone.”

Townsville Water and Waste Committee chairperson Russ Cook said much of the new Stagpole Street main would be installed using an innovative no-trenching method.

“Stagpole Street is a well-travelled road in a busy residential area. To minimise impacts on residents and the streetscape, the majority of this pipe will be installed using a no-trenching method,” Cr Cook said.

“We thank the community for their patience and understanding while we undertake this important upgrade to the City’s water infrastructure.”
