Contract awarded to rebuild Queensland after Debbie

Construction company Georgiou Group has been awarded its third contract as part of the Federal and Queensland Governments’ Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA).

The news follows the rebuilding process after the Severe Tropical Cyclone (STC) Debbie in March 2017 and will help reconstruct damaged areas. Construction company Georgiou Group has been awarded its third contract as part of the Federal and Queensland Governments’ Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA).

Progress on NDRRA sites include work on Lamington National Park Road, which has been reopened, Gold Coast – Springbrook Road, with construction works at 18 critical sites and 35 minor sites within a 10 kilometres section, and Beechmont Road, which required designs for 23 landslip sites.

Because of the heavy rainfall totals associated with STC Debbie, there were significant landslips as well as road damage, with more than 200 sites requiring geotechnical repairs.

Georgiou Executive General Manager Gary Georgiou said the team was excited to begin work on Beechmont Road after the successful delivery of a similar project which was completed in February 2018.

We recently delivered three major landslip repairs along Lamington National Park Road and our staff have come out the other side with a great experience on slip rectification works,” he said.

“Beechmont Road is our third contract with the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) for the NDRRA and we look forward to further fostering our relationship with TMR and the Gold Coast hinterland community.”
