Repairs to flood-damaged crossing finishing soon

REPAIRS to the Gap Creek culvert on Tarome Rd are progressing with the project expected to be completed next month.

Six pre-cast box culverts were recently lifted into place by crane as part of the disaster restoration project to repair the flood-damaged culvert crossing.

Scenic Rim Mayor John Brent said council awarded a $596,000 contract to Naric Pty Ltd in late June to carry out repairs.

A section of culvert on the eastern side of the creek was damaged by floodwaters and debris following ex-Tropical Cyclone Oswald in January 2013.

"The Tarome area sustained significant damage to infrastructure in this disaster event, with damage and loss of Villis Bridge downstream," Cr Brent said.

"The completion of the Villis Bridge replacement earlier this year has allowed us to proceed with the repairs to the Gap Creek crossing."

Residents are thanked for their patience during the reconstruction work.
