Binna Burra Road reconstruction works

Following extensive damage from the Southern Queensland Bushfires on Binna Burra Road in September 2019, we have been working to repair this severely damaged area along Binna Burra Road.

Benefits

  • Restores damaged infrastructure

Key features

The reconstruction works along Binna Burra Road have involved extensive repairs at multiple locations. Works commenced in October 2019 and have involved:

  • installing slope stabilisation above and below the road, including drape mesh and rock-fall protection above the road.
  • involved installing large rock gabions (wire rock-filled cages) and anchoring these with long soil nails and rock anchors into the cliff face downslope.

These measures have required specialist personnel trained in rope access construction, specialist geotechnical equipment abseiled down the cliff face and advice from consulting experts.

Funding

Eligible reconstruction works are jointly funded by the Commonwealth and Queensland Governments under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).

Current status

The Binna Burra Road reconstruction project is now complete. Binna Burra Road is open to the public. 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the local community for their patience during these important works.
