Pierces Creek Road Residents urged to plan journeys with multiple flood recovery projects to come 

Pierces Creek Road residents from Crows Nest to Mount Binga in the northern part of the Toowoomba Region are being advised to plan their journeys as multiple flood recovery projects are scheduled on Pierces Creek Road for the remainder of 2024.

TRC General Manager Infrastructure Services Group Mike Brady said these works would be addressing flood related damage from the February 2022 declared flood events.

“The flood repair works will include various sealed road repair treatments such as sealed pavement repairs and sealed edge repairs” he said.

“We will also be replacing eight culverts that have received damage during the flooding events along the length of the road.

“In some instances, damaged culverts need to be replaced to a new standard and those projects may take some time to complete.”

In most cases, roads and culvert repairs will be completed under stop and go traffic arrangements with advanced notification signposted prior to each project commencing to minimise the disruption to the community.

“We continue to urge residents to follow the direction of traffic management personnel on site to ensure the safety of the community and our work teams,” Mr Brady said.

The works along Pierces Creek Road will be delivered by both Georgiou Group (Council’s Flood Recovery Contractor in the north) and Council’s Construction and Maintenance Team.

The Flood Recovery Program repairs are limited to repairing damage that has occurred as a direct result of the 2022 declared flood events, and any other road damage or maintenance will continue to be addressed in accordance with Council’s construction and maintenance programs.

Total repair works for the 2022 Flood Recovery Program is expected to exceed $250 million across the Region with assistance provided through the jointly-funded Commonwealth-State Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA). Flood Recovery Program works are expected to be completed by the end of 2024 (weather permitting).
