EXPRESSIONS of interest are now open for the design and construction of the Liverpool Plains Shire Coucil’s Quipolly water project.
The expressions are for all works to the project including a new water treatment plant and pipelines to Werris Creek and Quirindi.
Liverpool Plains mayor Andrew Hope said it was an exciting development in the project.
“It is great to see the project starting to take shape,” Cr Hope said.
“The Quipolly water project is one of the largest projects we have undertaken in the shire and it is good to see we have reached a major milestone in making it a reality.
“The expression of interest is open and from this process we will narrow it down to a tender process.
“It is important for the delivery of the project that we have one contractor or consortium overseeing and being responsible for every detail, so that the whole project is co-ordinated.”
Cr Hope said the community would be kept informed throughout the project’s construction period.
“So that the community can be kept up to date with progress on the water project, we have launched a new website, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram page, and people can fill in their details to receive emails or sms messages when we publish new information,” he said.
“Information will also be available at the Council Chambers and our libraries; as things progress events will be held at Werris Creek and Quipolly Dam.”
The expressions of interest period will be open until 2pm, March 14 and can be accessed via Tenderlink on www.tenderlink.com/lpsc.
