W4Q infrastructure renewal works

Council is undertaking $10 million worth of kerb and channel, pavement rehabilitation, asphalt, footpath and drain relining renewal works across all nine divisions, with grant funding from the Queensland Government's Works for Queensland (W4Q) program.

The projects, which focus on suburban infrastructure, will enhance both the visual amenity and functionality of the suburbs.

  • Kerb & Channel Renewal ($2.5 million)
  • Pavement Rehab ($2.5 million)
  • Asphalt Renewal ($1 million)
  • Footpath Renewal ($2 million)
  • Drain Relining ($2 million)

Cairns Mayor Bob Manning said the projects seek to enhance both the visual amenity and functionality of the suburbs.

“Through the Our Cairns survey, it became clear that residents want to see suburban enhancement activities,” Cr Manning said.

“We’ve taken this feedback into account in determining how to spend this grant allocation.”

The $10 million renewal works project is being delivered under the Queensland Government's Works for Queensland (W4Q) program, which has provided $15.5 million to Cairns Regional Council to fast-track job-creating community and infrastructure renewal works.  Under the W4Q program, the works must be completed by 30 November 2017.
