Isaac roads are undergoing a $40 million works program over two years after 85 per cent of the network was extensively damaged by severe weather.
A total of 706km across 4457 sites will undergo a major restoration starting from April 2018 through the jointly funded Commonwealth-State Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA).
Severe Tropical Cyclone Debbie and a Central Queensland severe weather event last year had placed a huge strain on 205 roads in Isaac.
The region's future economic and social growth relies on fit-for-purpose road infrastructure to link communities to jobs and essential services.
The funding demonstrated the Australian and Queensland governments’ commitment to providing continued relief and recovery assistance following natural disasters.
Works will cover Carmila, Clairview, Clarke Creek, Clermont, Coppabella, Dysart, Flaggy Rock, Glenden, Greenhill, Ilbilbie, Kilcummin, Middlemount, Mackenzie Creek, Moranbah, Nebo, St Lawrence and Valkyrie.
This comes after a major government-funded road project will see 65km across 94 sections of road across Isaac being restored in a $4.2 million roll out starting from 14 February 2018.
Council has awarded the multimillion dollar contract to Epoca Constructions to be delivered through the jointly funded Commonwealth-State NDRRA.
