APA maintains cooperative and respectful relationships with landowners across over 15,000 kilometres of gas transmission pipelines throughout the country. We are committed to building similar relationships with landowners along the Western Outer Ring Main pipeline route.

Every landholder is compensated as a result of the easement to accommodate the pipeline. The compensation offered by APA is based on market value and also includes consdieration of the value of the easement and among other things, the anticipated loss of productivity over the land used during construction. Landholders affected by the works are encouraged to obtain independent legal advice.

Biosecurity

APA is responsible for ensuring our activities during construction adhere to all legislative requirements and Government policy applicable to biosecurity and weed management matters. Successful management of weed and other biosecurity matters is a responsibility we take very seriously on all our projects and operational assets.

During discussions with landholders prior to access occuring, we will be seeking assistance to identify any known areas of weed infestation or other biosecurity concerns. This consultation will inform the planning of our fieldwork and the weed management and biosecurity protocols to be followed.
