Haughton Pipeline Project - Stage 2

Lackon provided Technical Engineering, Bid and Project Management services to deliver the Haughton Pipeline Project - Stage 2.

Currently, detailed design work for Stage 2 of the Haughton pipeline is investigating extending the existing pipeline from the Haughton River to the Burdekin River in the vicinity of Clare.

Funded by a $195 million contribution from the Queensland Government, Stage 2 is a greenfield site, covering 30 kms and is completely different to stage 1. Stage 1 was predominantly built within existing easements and land corridors.

The Haughton Pipeline Project (HPP) proposes extending the new, larger 1800mm Stage 1 water pipeline to source water from the Burdekin River to the Ross River Dam.

A Queensland Government funded water security initiative for Townsville, the pipeline will support the city’s Ross River Dam water catchment. When complete, the HPP will provide greater capacity to provide raw water into the Ross River Dam to augment or “top up” water levels during periods of very low rainfall.
