Underground Service Locating

Pipe and cable locating is an important part of everyday life in the construction industry.  1300 Locate is here to locate and protect underground assets from damage mainly caused by excavation and erosion. 

When damaged, these assets can cause a minor or major impact on our day to day life – from a minor loss of communication or water to a major environmental catastrophe or death.  

In the past, radio detection was considered the best way to locate communications and power, but over the last 7 years we have seen a large increase in the amount of untraceable assets emerging (Optic Fibre, HDPE, Hobas). This has resulted in locators utilising more advanced and precise technology, such as Ground Penetrating Radar and Sonding equipment, to help find these assets. 

Due to massive infrastructure upgrades over the last five years, the Pipe and Cable locating industry is slowly becoming a recognised stand alone industry and driving this industry in Queensland is 1300 Locate.


With years of industry experience and the most up to date equipment, our professional cable locators have a solid proven history of success in locating a wide variety of utilities. Although there are limitations to the ability of the current technology to detect all hidden utilities, 1300 Locate can provide a professional, reliable service which offers you the assurance of:

  • Industry experience
  • Accreditations
  • Professional indemnity and public liability insurance
  • Referees
