The Department of Transport and Main Roads is working to reconstruct 88km of disaster-damaged roads in the South Burnett / Gympie  region over the next few years, following 2010-2011 floods.

The work is part of “Operation Queenslander”, the largest reconstruction effort in Queensland’s history.

The works are being delivered on a number of State-controlled highways and roads across the region.

The roads to be reconstructed include:

  • Kingaroy–Cooyar Road
  • Chinchilla–Wondai Road
  • Kingaroy–Burrandowan Road
  • Wondai–Proston Road
  • Murgon–Barambah Road
  • Murgon–Gayndah Road
  • Kilkivan–Tansey Road
  • Kilcoy–Murgon Road
  • Kingaroy–Barkers Creek Road
  • Proston–Boondooma Road
  • Boondooma Dam Road
  • Gympie–Woolooga Road
  • D’Aguilar Highway (Yarraman–Kingaroy)
  • Burnett Highway (Nanango–Goomeri and Goomeri–Gayndah)
  • Wide Bay Highway (Gympie–Goomeri)
  • Bunya Highway (Dalby–Kingaroy and Kingaroy–Goomeri)

The Department says the work is scheduled to be completed by mid-2013 and will generate more than 1300 local jobs.

Extensive repairs are also ongoing on the D'Aguilar Highway across the Blackbutt Range ... work is expected to continue until mid-this year
