Gladstone Regional Council is progressing more than $60 million worth of road and drainage works in the Gladstone region as part of federally funded Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA).
Council has received State Government Queensland Reconstruction Authority (QRA) approval to proceed with flood restoration works in two stages across the region to address damage to the network caused by major flooding in 2012-2013.
Golding Contractors commenced $37 million, Stage 1 (Southern and Eastern Region) of the works in September 2013 while McCosker BMD Joint Venture commenced $24.6 million, Stage 2 (Northern and Western Region) in November 2013.
Both contract packages are due for completion in mid-2015.
