Shire waits on pipeline news

NEGOTIATIONS will determine how and if Wentworth Shire residents will benefit from the $500 million Broken Hill pipeline.

“Council is happier with the route but there are some little technicalities they would like to see ironed out. As they said to me, Wentworth should get some benefit out of it, but at this stage nothing direct,” Member for Murray Adrian Piccoli said.

“I believe there are a couple of points where it does tap off. It’s a lot of pipeline going 250kms, they should take the opportunity to resolve some water issues along the way as well.”
