John Holland to deliver Goulburn Murray Water Connections project


06 March 2017

John Holland has been chosen to deliver a significant part of the Goulburn Murray Water (GMW) Connections Project, which will upgrade vital irrigation infrastructure in regional Victoria.

Key features and benefits of the project include:

Chief Executive Officer, Joe Barr, said the project would bring important benefits in water security for local Victorian farmers.

“The Murray Darling Basin is the largest river system in Australia, contributing 40% of the gross value of agricultural production in our nation and supplying water to over two million Australians. We look forward to working with irrigators and communities to enhance the security of this most precious resource,” he said.

“John Holland has been associated with a number of irrigation projects in Australia and New Zealand. We will bring this knowledge to the Connections project to deliver necessary water saving to GMW”.

Regional General Manager VIC/SA/TAS & NZ, Trevor Hall, said John Holland welcomes the opportunity to work with Goulburn Murray Water and the local community.

“The GMW Connections Project is the most significant irrigation upgrade in Victoria’s history,” he said.

“We thank Goulburn Murray Water and the State Government for the opportunity to work with landowners, local communities and other key stakeholders to deliver this phase of the project on behalf of Goulburn Murray Water and the State Government.”

Construction of the important Winter Works is scheduled to commence in the coming months. The whole Connection Project program is due to be completed by October 2020.
