Townsville City Council plans to host another industry information session on the Haughton Pipeline Duplication Project on Friday, May 4.
Mayor Jenny Hill said this would demonstrate to local firms how to get involved in the project.
“Council awarded the tender for the supply of pipe for the 36.5km pipeline this week, but many more local companies – and workers – will be needed to ensure this crucial infrastructure is delivered,” Cr Hill said.
“The pipeline will need all sorts of workers including surveyors, civil engineers, truck drivers and labourers – just to name a few.
“There’s plenty of work available on the pipeline and we want to create as many jobs as possible for locals.
“Anyone with a small to medium-sized business should come along to the information session on Friday to find out how they can be a part of the project.”
The information session will be held at the Mayoral Reception Room at 103 Walker St. Doors open at 8.45am for a 9am start. The event is expected to conclude at 11am.
