Pipeline to take out sign
Friday, 27th April, 2018
Broken Hill’s welcome sign on the Wentworth Road is in the path of the Wentworth to Broken Hill pipeline.
The pipeline looks set to run through the ‘Broken Hill Welcomes You’ sign situated on the shoulder of the road.
A spokesperson for the project said they were speaking to Council, and that everything would be put back to its original state.
“The project team is committed to returning any area impacted back to its original state post-construction activity,” a spokeswoman for the project said.
“Where signage is within the construction right of way, the project team consults with the owner to make arrangements to relocate or reinstate the sign after construction.
“We have spoken to Council about construction in this area.”
The spokeswoman said more details would be released at a later date.
A Council spokesman said they would keep the sign for future reinstallation.
“Council understands that the pipeline installation will require the small welcome sign to be removed,” the spokesman said.
“The larger billboard will be unaffected.
“Council will retain the wooden panels from the small welcome sign for possible future reinstallation.”PICTURE: Emily Roberts
