THE worksite in the rolling hills between Wonthaggi and Korumburra may be idle now but the $43 million pipeline connecting the Lance Creek Reservoir to the northern supply system is on track.
It’s on track for completion in 2019 but just as importantly, on track to meet its considerable budget.
Contractors are due to get back to work next week so motorists are urged to exercise caution in the area, especially between Kongwak and Jumbunna.
The main firms involved in the Lance Creek Water Connection Project are:
• Jado Construction Pty Ltd, which will build the pipeline from Lance Creek to Korumburra, and Korumburra to Poowong
• Simpson Construction Pty Ltd, which will build the pump stations and dosing facilities
• Steel Mains Pty Ltd and Iplex Pipelines Pty Ltd, which will supply materials and components for pipeline construction.
