Construction of The Pines Wind Farm is expected to take 24-36 months to complete. If The Pines Wind Farm progresses through the investigation and Planning and Approvals phases, construction could commence in 2028.

Construction will involve the use of trucks, light vehicles and machinery moving in and around the project site.

Some local roads will be used for delivery of materials and equipment to site. A comprehensive traffic management plan will be prepared as part of the project approvals to manage impacts to the community including school bus routes and other sensitive uses. We are responsible for repairing any damage to local roads.

Hundreds of direct and indirect jobs will be created during construction with most of the construction workforce to be housed locally. The workforce housing strategy will be developed during the Planning and Approvals phase with input from local accommodation and tourism providers.
