A significantly improved Narrabri water supply is on the way as contractors install new pipes and infrastructure in Narrabri Shire Council’s biggest ever contracted project.
The contractors began work on the $10.4 million project in November and are ahead of the scheduled completion time towards the end of the year, the shire’s infrastructure delivery director Darren Raeck told The Courier.
A network of new pipes is being installed, which will improve flow and water pressure, and the work will include new storages which will help improve water quality as the ‘ponded’ water settles.
“The contractors have completed about two kilometres of brand new pipe, about 25 percent of the work planned,” Mr Raeck said.
“This week the contractors are working on Balonne through to Dewhurst Streets.
“We also have work underway at Villarette and Mackenzie Streets.
“The scheduled completion date is towards the latter half of this year, October, but they are ahead of schedule.”
