NDRRA South Burnett Region Flood Restoration North Package

NDRRA South Burnett Region Flood Restoration North Package

As part of the National Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA), CMC was engaged to perform extensive restoration works to Council infrastructure that had been damaged by extensive flooding and tropical cyclones Tasha and Anthony (November 2011 – February 2012).

The 2013 Australia day floods caused further damage to Council infrastructure and CMC’s original contract was expanded to include immediate emergent works. In June 2013 the client awarded CMC a variation to complete 57 floodway reconstructions.


Damage was spread across the Council area and largely involved road maintenance works and reconstruction/rehabilitation of floodways. Works included both sealed and unsealed roads, road drainage reconstruction and floodway reconstruction.

This is the second of two packages CMC undertook for this client. Works were categorised under three key areas:

  • Road pavement maintenance, reconstruction and rehabilitation of both sealed and unsealed roads
  • Road drainage reconstruction and rehabilitation
  • Floodway reconstruction and rehabilitation

Highlights & Outcomes

  • CMC mobilised at short notice to complete emergent works to maintain road safety and restore access.
  • CMC self-performed all concrete works to overcome resourcing issues.
  • All floodway reconstructions performed with zero environmental impact and in accordance with WWBW02 ‘Temporary waterway barrier permit’.
  • Successfully managed logistics and safety, environmental and quality compliance documentation across all locations with crews set up for a day, a week, or on multiple sites within any given day.
  • 127,349 man hours with zero LTIs.
  • In Kind Support – Constructed a spectator hill for the local Nanango Stags Rugby League Club.
  • Sustained a positive relationship and ongoing work with the client.
