Gas mains renewal program

We want to ensure our customers receive a safe, secure and reliable gas supply across Australia and that's why we've created the Mains Renewal Program (MRP). Our five year pro-active program is in progress across networks in Victoria, South Australia and Queensland and involves replacing the old cast iron pipes and unprotected steel mains with polyethylene pipes.

 

How it works

The Mains Renewal Program (MRP) is a five year pro-active program across networks in Victoria, South Australia and Queensland and involves replacing the old cast iron pipes, unprotected steel and PVC mains using polyethylene pipes.

These works are necessary to ensure we continue to provide a safe, secure and reliable gas supply. They reduce the risks of gas leakages and water ingress associated with ageing infrastructure as well as increasing the operating pressure required to meet consumer demand.

The ‘insertion technique’ is being used to help minimise disruption. This involves inserting the new polyethylene pipe—a plastic material that's flexible and highly resistant to corrosion—inside the original main. Using this method means we won't need to dig up entire pipe trenches.
