Will GBWL need to access the land once the pipeline is constructed? Once construction is completed, it is expected there will be a minimal need for access to the corridor other than for annual maintenance checks on above ground infrastructure, such as air valves. Where more complex infrastructure (e.g. pump station or connection points) [...]
Where appropriate, GBWL will assist with the payment of obtaining an independent valuation. However, to avoid any dispute, the prior agreement of GBWL to reimburse such costs should be obtained ahead of any work.
Where appropriate, GBWL will assist with the payment of reasonable and necessary legal fees. However, to avoid any dispute, the prior agreement of GBWL to reimburse such costs should be obtained ahead of any work.
The Project is required to satisfy government requirements for the Project to proceed to construction and access the construction funding. Once the Project has been given the ‘go ahead’ to proceed, the impacts under the easement will be capable of being realised. Following this, any agreement regarding the payment of compensation may be facilitated [...]
GBWL intend to use a standard approach to the valuation of the easement and registration against title. Prior to any works, the Contractor will sit with each landholder to work through access requirements, works timing, landholder conditions, restoration, the location of any known infrastructure and the location of infrastructure. This will be documented in [...]
GBWL seeks to achieve a mutually agreed outcome with all landholders. To maintain a consistent and fair approach, GBWL is proposing a standard easement agreement (with minor amendments through an Annexure).

The Project and the Contractor will ensure that there is appropriate insurance coverage for the works to be undertaken. This includes public liability, construction works and workers compensation insurances. Access to private property will be documented by the Contractor through a Landholder Access Agreement prior to works. This will ensure any access requirements such [...]
The Project will require a working corridor width of approximately 20m, which includes the area for the pipe and a work area and spoil storage area during construction. The pipeline corridor will be rehabilitated following completion of construction. For the most part and where possible, the pipeline will be located in road reserves or [...]
Wherever possible the Project is intending to install infrastructure within the existing road reserve. There are however circumstances where there is not sufficient land available within the road reserve, the road reserve is incorrectly fenced or the road reserves GBWL is intending to use are unformed. In such circumstances, the pipeline will be located [...]
