the largest reconstruction effort in Queensland’s history, rebuilding communities, fixing infrastructure and restoring regional economies.
The result will be improved travelling conditions for this key tourist route
LDI Constructions Pty Ltd is delivered the work on behalf of the department.
- The reconstruction work was delivered under the Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA), a joint federal and state initiative. Under these arrangements, the Australian Government provides 75% of the funding, with 25% from the Queensland Government. The State Government is contributing additional funding for the widening works.
