QLD to rectify monsoon road damage following $14.9M infrastructure approvals

  • Posted on Tuesday 3rd, December 2019.

Infrastructure projects worth $14.9 million have been approved to rebuild Queensland roads damaged by monsoon-related flooding earlier this year.

The funds, contributed by joint federal and state governments, will be used to rebuild roads to a higher standard in the latest round of recovery projects.

Minister for Natural Disaster and Emergency Management, David Littleproud, said staying connected helps to ensure communities can access vital services in a crisis.

“In Cloncurry, $9.4 million go to improving Sedan Dip Road, which was cut for weeks," he said. “Upgrades on the Richmond to Winton Road and Kennedy Development Road also have the go-ahead."

Far North Queensland communities will also receive more than $79,000 for repair works on Oak Park Road in the Etheridge Shire.

Additionally, Carpentaria Shire Council will receive $734,500 as part of the Water and Sewerage package to repair numerous parts of the Normanton Sewerage Treatment Plant that were damaged by the moonsoon trough.

Delivery of these projects will be rolled out until June 2021.
