BMD rebuilding after the rain

BMD Constructions has been awarded another flood recovery and reconstruction package as part of Operation Queenslander. This will be BMD’s fourth flood restoration contract, and is the largest package for the Mackay and Whitsunday region. Natural disasters and an extraordinary level of associated rainfall since 2007 resulted in significant damage to the region’s road network, including both local roads and main arterials. Around 9,000km of Queensland roads were damaged in last summer’s disasters and more than $490 million is being invested by the Federal and State Governments to reconstruct roads in far North Queensland alone. The $88m package involves more than 96km of pavement rehabilitation works along various sections of highway on the existing alignment and generally under live traffic. Restoration locations include: •    Gregory Highway (Capella to Clermont); •    Gregory Development Road (Clermont to Belyando crossing); •    Suttor Development Road (Nebo to Mt Coolon); •    Bowen Development Road (Bowen to Collinsville); •    Bowen Development Road (Collinsville to Belyando crossing); •    Collinsville Elphinstone Road; and •    Gregory Development Road. The project will also stimulate the local economy with more than 1,000 jobs being created in and around Mackay by Operation Queenslander. _________________________________________________________________________________
