Flood Restoration Works Flood Restoration Works

Flood restoration works worth $11 million were completed in the Boyne Valley-Diglum, Calliope and Mount Larcom-Bracewell-Raglan areas on July 13, 2016. 

The works, which repaired damage caused by ex-Tropical Cyclone Marcia in February 2015, restored the affected roads and drainage infrastructure to a condition similar to that which had previously existed.

The project was jointly funded by the Commonwealth and State Government National Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA) program.

Council was also successful in securing $3.6m from the State Government's Betterment Fund, also established in reponse to ex-Tropical Cyclone Marcia and jointly funded through the NDRRA program,  to make eight roads more disaster resiliant.

Works to Marsh, Bindawalla, Cattle Creek and Marsh roads and Collinwood Lane have been completed and works to Tableland, Gentle Annie, Mt Larcom Bracewell, Davis and Norton roads is ongoing. Works on Popenia Road are expected to start in late February, 2017.
