Ballan City Gate water heater

Location: Ballan, Victoria

Timeframe: Completion around July 2024

The Ballan City Gate is experiencing supply issues due to ice forming around the pipes during cold weather, narrowing their available diameter -just look at that photo! We’re about to start construction on a new on-site water heater that will reduce the impact of winter weather conditions. Works are expected to be completed by July 2024.

What is a City Gate?

A City Gate is part of the gas supply chain. It’s the point where the gas transmission network (where gas is moved from production facilities across Victoria in large pipelines) connects to our distribution network. At a City Gate, transmission gas pressure gets regulated down to the pressure needed to distribute it safely to homes and businesses.
