Davis Road - Floodway upgrade - 2020/21

Project Overview

The floodway crossing over the Brockman River on Davis Road is in need of substantial repair works. Council has allocated funds in the 2020/21 Annual Budget to undertake the required works to ensure the crossing remains safe for all users. 

This project has been funded by the Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program (LRCI). On 22 May 2020 the Australian Government announced a new $500 million Local Roads and Community Infrastructure Program (LRCI Program). This program will support local councils to deliver priority local road and community infrastructure projects across Australia, supporting jobs and the resilience of local economies to help communities bounce back from the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Funding allocations for the LRCI Program have been calculated in a similar way to how the Roads to Recovery Program and the road component of the Financial Assistance Grants works.This formula takes into consideration road length and population and is based on recommendations of Local Government Grants Commissions.

This project is is scheduled to commence in May 2021.
