Map of Young to Wagga Looping stage 2 project

To provide greater capacity within the NSW gas transmission system, we are duplicating the Young to Wagga Wagga pipeline. In 2010 we successfully completed Stage 1 of the project, from Bomen to Bethungra, and are now proceeding with Stage 2, from Bethungra to Young.

The Young to Wagga Wagga pipeline provides gas supply to the towns in the central south of NSW including Griffith, Cootamundra, Young and Wagga Wagga and enables gas transportation between NSW and Victoria. This expansion will improve flexibility and security of supply.

The Young to Wagga Wagga looping pipeline project will involve the construction and operation of a gas pipeline between Bethungra and Young that completes a looping (duplication), with an 18-inch pipeline, of the existing Young to Wagga Wagga Pipeline. The pipeline will pass on the western side of Cootamundra and Young townships and is located in the Junee, Cootamundra, Harden and Young local government areas.
