DRFA Program of Works - 2022

8th February 2022

Council is undertaking Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) reconstruction works across the Shire due to Tropical Cyclone Imogen and Associated Low Pressure System 2 - 12 January 2021 and Tropical Cyclone Niran and Associated Low Pressure System, 25 February - 3 March 2021.

Unsealed Road Projects

Council have appointed local contractor Timrith Transport to undertake the unsealed road grading and reconstruction works within the Shire.

The program entails certain sections of the road being formation graded or resheeted with table drains cleared and reinstated. This work will require single lane road closures at certain times throughout the project.

As per the Queensland Reconstruction Authorities Treatment Guide, gravel resheeting is completed as per the image below:

Landslip Projects

Council has received funding for two landslip projects. One landslip located on Mount Fox Road and the other on Abergowrie Road. Council has appointed local Contractor Keita Services Pty Ltd to undertake the remedial works for both landslips. Construction works commenced late May 2022 with works anticipated to be completed by mid August 2022. This work will require single lane road closures at certain times throughout the project.

Ongoing works will occur between 6:00am and 6:00pm Monday to Friday. Possible works may occur Saturday between 7:00am and 5:00pm.

We understand that this may be a short-term inconvenience and we hope to work together with you in a professional and amicable manner for the long-term reconstruction of the road network.
