CBD Utilities Upgrade

Project snapshot

Townsville City Council is investing in improving water and waste water infrastructure for the future development of our city.

Project Update

The installation of more than 18km of new water and sewer pipes throughout the CBD and sections of North Ward is now complete.

Currently, we have some minor 'finishing works' to complete in a number of areas through the city including line-marking and asphalt works.

It is envisaged that these works will be complete by the end of January, weather permitting.
