Rookwood Weir contracts rolling out in CQ

Rookwood Weir contracts rolling out in CQ

Civil Mining and Construction has won a roadworks contract as part of the $352 million Rookwood Weir project in Central Queensland.

Natural Resources Minister Dr Anthony Lynham said the company would deliver the $2.2 million-dollar road upgrade for the Capricorn Highway intersection upgrade at Gogango.

The project will provide safe access for earth-moving machinery and construction vehicles travelling to the weir site.

“A few weeks ago, Rocky Regional Council workers started work on the $7.5 million upgrade of Thirsty Creek Road,” he said.

“And now we have even more jobs on the way with the road upgrade at Gogango.”

Member for Keppel Brittany Lauga encouraged local businesses to continue to register  their interest to supply goods and services on the project’s dedicated web registry.

About 130 Central Queensland businesses have already registered.

“The Palaszczuk Government’s Buy Local policy maximises local jobs and business opportunities,” she said.

“But you still have to put your hand up and register to be part of the action.”

Bids are currently being assessed for the main construction partner and tenders are open to build a new Riverslea Bridge.
