Roma Levee Project Nears End (Australia)

A 5.2 kilometre-long earthen levee that could protect 500 homes and businesses in Roma from the devastation of another flood is nearing its completion.

“Different locations need different infrastructure including levees, drainage upgrades, retention basins and back-flow devices that will make Queensland communities safer,” Community Recovery and Resilience Minister David Crisafulli said.

The levee, which is expected to be finished next month, runs from north of the Roma airport, crosses the Carnarvon Highway to traverse the eastern side of the town and follows Bungil Creek, ending above Lovell Street.

The Maranoa Regional Council is now working on Stage Two, which involves a 1.6 kilometre levee, diversion channel improvements and local flood mitigation measures.

Stage One, or the larger levee, will cost about $16 million with the bulk of funding coming from State programs such as Royalties for the Regions and Local Government Grants and Subsidies.
