Sites and progress

The current selection of 21 priority projects (see table below)—including 2 research projects—are the result of extensive planning and design work as well as consultation with industry and community representatives.

As detailed designs are finalised for each package and construction scheduled, the local community around each project will be notified and information will appear on this website.

It’s important to note that the current list of priority projects is not final and may change as a result of more extensive investigation during the detailed design phase. Designs for a number of ‘reserve’ projects are being prepared in the event that on-site discoveries or unavoidable delays make one of the priority projects infeasible.

Conversely, cost-savings across the ACT Healthy Waterways project may make it possible to activate a reserve project.
