Member for Geraldton Ian Blayney MLA welcomes the State Governments commitment to install a new water main to improve water supply to the northern suburbs of Geraldton and Northampton.
“The new water main will improve reliability of water supply in the area which will help to improve the daily lives of residents.
Mr Blayney said that he has had various discussions with constituents and relevant organisations regarding the unreliability of the water supply in the northern areas of Geraldton and has been following its progress for some time.
“I’ve had various dealings regarding the water supply in this area”, said Mr Blayney.
“A new main will be greatly welcomed by the local community.
As well as providing higher reliability to residents, Mr Blayney is also pleased that local businesses will be used to install the new infrastructure.
“Eight local sub-contractors will be involved in the first stage of the construction which will be good for Geraldton’s economy.
“This project will create local job opportunities and will support our local businesses.
“I’m glad this project has already begun and I look forward to its completion.”
