NDRRA, Toowoomba Regional Council Flood Recovery Program
As part of the National Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA), CMC was engaged as part of a panel of three civil contractors to perform extensive restoration works to Council infrastructure caused by the major flood events of December 2010 and January 2011.
CMC partnered with Toowoomba-based contractor, Newland Civil to strengthen the team’s knowledge of local requirements and facilitate a quick delivery of the works.
CMC’s scope of work largely involved the remediation and reconstruction of a number of rural roads and drainage structures throughout the Toowoomba region. In total 14 packages of work were awarded to CMC.
- Road maintenance works, in-situ stabilisation, bitumen seals, asphalt overlays, guardrail, pavement reconstruction, unbound gravels and general drainage repairs to 444 individual sites
- Reconstruction and rehabilitation of damaged flood ways (Cockatoo Creek, Emu Creek, and Three Mile Road)
- Reconstruction of damaged sewer and water mains
- Reconstruction of the crest to the Ted Pukallus Weir, which is an active water source for Toowoomba Regional Council
- West Creek Channel Works – Widening and beautification works to 420 metres of existing drainage channel including two footbridges, retaining walls and 400 metres of storm water drainage to Gogg Street
