Culvert Replacement Tender Awarded for Northern and Southern Suburbs


The Cassowary Coast Regional Council will invest $1,421,000 to replace ten aged culvert cross-overs throughout the region through the Culvert Replacement Program.

The 2023-2024 Program, which is fully funded by Council, aims to renew aged culvert infrastructure across the region at the identified locations reported as reaching end of life during a recent asset inspection. 

Council’s Asset Sustainability portfolio holder Councillor Barry Barnes said Council will continue upgrading essential infrastructure services across the region to ensure standards are met and provide resilient infrastructure for future generations. 

“Upgrading the aged culverts, will not only improve road safety and conditions but will assist with drainage flow,” said Councillor Barry Barnes.

The 2023-2024 Culvert Replacement Program provides for replacement works along sections of:

  • Warrubullen Road, Cowley Beach
  • Walter Lever Estate Road, Japoonvale
  • Gravel Pit Road, Ellerbeck
  • North Davidson Road, Cardstone
  • O’Hanlon Road, Feluga

A tender for the Culvert Replacement works has been divided into a Northern and Southern Package for works to be efficiently undertaken  across the region. The Northern Package has been awarded to MJC Civil, and the Southern Package has been awarded to Terranovus Civil.

Council will continue to provide updates on this project as they occur and through

We sincerely thank the community for your understanding and patience during the construction works.
