NQLIRA infrastrucure and betterment


The causeway over Galah Creek in the Flinders Shire near Hughenden completed in 2011 and subsequently photographed during the weather event of February 2019. The Galah Creek project involved raising the entries onto the causeway from both approaches and multiple square concrete culverts included in the design to allow free-flowing flood water. Some infrastructure is often repaired just in time to be damaged again during the next weather event, making it harder for communities to build resilience and withstand natural disasters. Critically important is to break this cycle and enable councils to build bridges, roads, floodways and other essential infrastructure to a more resilient standard. This is an exercise in betterment if done properly in a considered way.
