Investigations advance into the potential Tennant Creek to Darwin Infrastructure Corridor to support continued development of our regions.
The proposed corridor will consider the co-location of pipelines for future services including gas, water, communications and other utilities.
Designing multiple infrastructures within the same corridor will provide opportunities for the Territory’s hydrogen energy, natural gas and digital infrastructure sectors to efficiently transport products to commercial markets, including feedstock for the proposed Middle Arm Sustainable Development Precinct.
This proposed corridor would deliver vital infrastructure and connectivity within the regions as well as long-term, sustainable jobs for regional Territorians.
A prefeasibility study has identified a preliminary corridor alignment which takes into account engineering, environmental, social and infrastructure considerations, and will be further refined and developed during consultation with stakeholders.
The Northern Territory Government recognises that landholders are in the best position to provide information regarding their property.
Consultation with stakeholders will encourage input and help to identify constraints for consideration.
Public information drop-in sessions in Tennant Creek, Katherine, Adelaide River and Greater Darwin will also follow after direct consultation with landholders.
Collaboration is also underway with the Aboriginal Area Protection Authority and Land Councils to understand the potential impacts of the project on Aboriginal sacred sites and Aboriginal land.
