The Albanese and Minns Governments are building back infrastructure in Eden-Monaro, making our community more resilient to natural disasters.
In Eden-Monaro, the Albanese Government is helping to deliver $917,006 funding for improvements to QPRC's Flood Damaged Causeways through the jointly-funded Infrastructure Betterment Fund and Community Local Infrastructure Recovery Package – Community Assets Program.
The Infrastructure Betterment Fund is focused on building back essential public assets, such as roads, bridges and drainage impacted by the storm and flood events in 2021 and 2022, as well as the 2019/2020 Black Summer bushfires.
The Community Assets Program is repairing and building back community assets, including parks, walkways, community buildings, and tourism and recreational facilities, impacted by the storm and flood events in February and June 2022.
Member for Eden-Monaro Kristy McBain said the Albanese Government is committed to the ongoing recovery of flood-impacted communities.
“There have been several causeways severely damaged from recent flood events in Queanbeyan-Palerang. This project will see improved causeway structures constructed in these floodways, to improve their resilience and accessibility during flood events.
“By investing in better designs and better materials, we can make sure local roads, schools and drainage systems are built to last, and better withstand future natural disasters.” Ms McBain said.
