Future-proofing Queensland’s sewage treatment infrastructure

Work to future-proof south-east Queensland’s sewage treatment facilities begins next month, after John Holland was awarded the five-year circa $170 million Queensland Urban Utilities Southern Treatment Plants Capital Works Program.

The package of work to renew and upgrade existing treatment facilities in the regions of Ipswich, Somerset, the Lockyer Valley and the Scenic Rim will allow local communities to grow.

General Manager QLD/NT Rob Evans said: “We are extremely pleased to have secured this program of works, providing critical infrastructure upgrades for the people of south-east Queensland. 

“John Holland has a long history of delivering water and wastewater assets in the region and we look forward to continuing this legacy over the next five years in collaboration with Queensland Urban Utilities.”

General Manager Water Services Mal Shepherd said this program is much more than delivering critical wastewater treatment infrastructure.

“Together we are striving to deliver innovative solutions that are reliable, resilient and sustainable for future generations.

“Queensland Urban Utilities has a unique approach to delivering positive outcomes across all projects. Our team factored this, and our customer’s need to see ongoing value throughout the entire project lifecycle to help secure this program of works.”
