The Haughton Pipeline Duplication Project (HPDP) will link the Burdekin Haughton Water Supply Scheme to the Ross River Dam. The alignment of the new pipe will generally follow the existing pipeline’s route. Townsville City Council is managing the project.

The $215 million Stage 1 of HPDP, comprises duplicating 36.5 kilometres of pipe between Ross River Dam and the Haughton Channel along with ancillary upgrades such as upgrades to pump stations. Stage 1 has been fully funded by the Queensland Government. In April 2018, Iplex was awarded the supply of the 1.8 metre diameter pipe for Stage 1 and in July 2018, Mendi was awarded the first stage of civil works. Construction of Stage 1 is expected to be completed by December 2019.

Stage 2 will extend the duplication from Haughton Channel to the Burdekin River. In November 2018, the Federal Government committed $200 million to fully fund Stage 2, including $5 million to develop the business case. The Federal Opposition has stated it would also fully fund Stage 2, if elected next year. 

HPDP Stage 1 and Stage 2 were recommended by the Townsville Water Security Taskforce.
