Pioneer pipeline project tender released
The project works to deliver a treated water supply pipeline to Pioneer have been placed out to tender for the construction phase.
Another step closer to providing a long-term drinking water supply solution for the town, TasWater is seeking a construction partner for the project.
The tender period is five weeks.
The project, which will see a reticulated water supply reintroduced to the town, will deliver safe and reliable drinking water to Pioneer’s residents via the continuation of the Ringarooma Valley water scheme. In addition, the existing TasWater-owned network within the Pioneer township will be replaced.
TasWater General Manager Project Delivery Tony Willmott said after an extensive planning process, including considerable community consultation, Pioneer residents will soon see some action on the ground with the installation of the new pipelines.
“The release of this project to construction tender is an exciting milestone.”
“It’s taken a comprehensive design process and a lot of planning to get to this point, and now we’re on the cusp of commencement.
“The people of Pioneer have been waiting for a solution to their drinking water problems for many years and we are excited that work will soon begin to deliver an outcome which benefits the community.”
TasWater is on track to deliver treated water to the town by May 2023.
