Kennedy Highway: Reconstruction of sections south of Mt Garnet
- The Department of Transport and Main Roads is reconstructing sections of the Kennedy Highway between Mt Garnet and the intersection of the Gulf and Kennedy Developmental Roads.
The works are expected to be completed by the end of December 2012, weather permitting.
The works will be carried out on 10 sites.
- The works are part of Operation Queenslander, 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 important route.
FGF Developments is delivering the works on behalf of the department.
- The reconstruction work is being 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 works are valued at about $6.1 million.
