Infrastructure investment

Transport is a major contributor to economic outcomes. The transport sector represents 4.4 percent of GDP, and almost half of Australia’s major infrastructure construction is undertaken within the transport sector.

Investment in and delivery of publicly owned transport infrastructure is the responsibility of all three levels of government. The Australian Government has committed over $75 billion for the next 10 years to transport infrastructure across Australia. This investment is assisting in building more liveable cities, enabling better-connected regional communities, driving key productivity improvements and creating safer roads.

NICS will continue to be updated as specific project information and commitments are announced by the Australian, state and territory governments.

Southern Highlands Irrigation Scheme (SHIS)

This project has private investors

Project Logo

The SHIS will deliver 7,215 ML of high reliability irrigation water from a holding dam approximately 17km north-west of Bothwell to scheme participants via an approximate 58km underground pipeline distribution network.

Swan Valley Irrigation Scheme (SWAN)

This project has private investors

Project Logo

Tasmanian Government

The 2,000 ML scheme being developed would pump water from the Swan River in periods of higher river flows and store it in a dam adjacent to the river, close to the township of Cranbrook on the Melrose property. This stored water would then be delivered to participating landholders through a delivery network of pipes during the summer irrigation season. The irrigation water delivered would be at a surety level of greater than 95 per cent. The irrigation season will nominally run from 1 September to January 31 each year. 

Duck Irrigation Scheme (DUCK)

This project has private investors

Project Logo

Tasmanian Government

The Duck Irrigation Scheme comprises the Duck Irrigation District with a delivery of approximately 5,000 megalitres (ML) of winter water sourced from the Duck River and Mill Creek and stored in the proposed Mill Creek Dam. Water will be distributed via 60 kilometres of pipeline and a reach of the Duck River and pumped with approximately two pump stations, depending on final scheme design.

Notwithstanding the regulatory, policy and process challenges associated with the Small Towns Program, the three regional Corporations and now TasWater (TW) have had a positive impact on drinking water quality for many Tasmanians, particularly those living in the State’s regional areas. This strategy looks to extend on the work previously undertaken and provide an approach to manage the uncertainty and identification of a preferred option for each small town based on a Board approved Multi Criteria Analysis to remove all Boiled Water Alerts and Do Not Consume Notices.

Scottsdale Irrigation Scheme (SIS)

This project has private investors

Project Logo

Tasmanian Government

The Scottsdale Irrigation Scheme (SIS) is designed to deliver 8,600 ML of high-reliability summer irrigation water to the areas of Scottsdale, Springfield, Bridport and Waterhouse. Surplus winter flows would be stored in the proposed Camden Rivulet Dam and distributed by a 73km network of underground pipelines and three local waterways: the Great Forester and Brid Rivers and Hurst Creek. The scheme will generate electricity through a mini-hydro power station at South Springfield.

North Esk Irrigation Scheme (NEIS)

This project has private investors

Project Logo

Tasmanian Government

Water will be harvested and gravity fed from the North Esk River to a 3,150ML dam at Dalness before gravity feeding up to 2,850ML to scheme participants via a  38km underground pipeline distribution network.

Project Logo

The current project proposes to upgrade the Longford sewage treatment plant (STP), upgrade the Perth STP and rationalise both Western Junction STP and Evandale STP into the newly upgraded Perth STP.

Project Logo

The Ridgeway Dam has exceeded its life expectancy of 100 years. Ridgeway Dam also currently sits above the ANCOLD level. The ANCOLD Guidelines for Risk Assessment (October 2003) specify the acceptable societal risk criteria for existing dams. The proposed solution is to proceed with investigation, detailed design and installation of post-tensioned anchors and then to undertake installation of the upstream membrane in 2021."
