Territory Infrastructure Minister, Adam Giles, said the Territory Government has awarded the contract, for the supply and installation of over 13 kilomres of mid-steel cement0lined pipe, to water equipment specialist Pentair.

“The water main provides for further development of the Middle Arm industrial area and will service Channel Point power station, Wickham Point LNG plant, the Ichthys LNG plant, and the Wickham Point Immigration Detention Centre,” Mr Giles said.

 Mr Giles said the water main would be installed along Jenkins Road and run from the Stuart Highway to the Middle Arm industrial hub.

“The Country Liberals Government is committed to growing a three hub economy and planning properly for the future,” Mr Giles said.

“The water main will be installed in the road reserve over the coming months. It will run along the northern side of Jenkins Rd, under the railway, before joining the existing pipe system in Channel Island Road.”
