West Creek Channel Project Improves Flood Resilience

Toowoomba’s CBD will be better protected during the upcoming wet season thanks to the $5 million upgrade to West Creek channel.

Minister for State Development and Minister for Natural Resources and Mines, Dr Anthony Lynham, inspected the completed works as part of a visit to Toowoomba today.

“No one wants to see a repeat of the devastation caused by the floods of 2011,” Dr Lynham said.

These works will improve public safety, protect roads and rail connectivity and make Toowoomba a more flood-resilient community.”

The West Creek channel project, along with other works upstream and downstream, will increase the flow capacity and reduce flooding at the major Herries Street road crossing.

Dr Lynham said that detailed design was underway and construction due to commence this month on the $6.8 million Steger Road Infrastructure Enabling Project, co-funded by the Palaszczuk Government under its $375 million ‘Building our Regions’ regional infrastructure program.
