What is the NDRRA program of works?

The Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA) are a joint funding initiative of the Commonwealth and State Governments to provide disaster relief and recovery payments and infrastructure restoration to help communities recover from the effects of natural disasters. Most relief measures under NDRRA are funded 75% by the Commonwealth Government and 25% by the Queensland Government

Charters Towers Regional Council (CTRC) 2012 NDRRA Event

In March 2012 heavy rainfall and flooding in Northern and Far Northern Queensland caused widespread flooding and inundation to all areas of the CTRC.  Project Delivery Managers Pty Ltd (PDM) were engaged to provide a project management team to manage the NDRRA process and program of works utilising the contractors from Councils list of approved suppliers.

For more information about the finalisation of the project view the Finalisation Report.

What is the Queensland Reconstruction Authority (QRA)?

The QRA was established to manage the funding available to Queensland Local Governments.

Between November 2010 and April 2011, Queensland was struck by a series of natural disasters.  Extensive flooding caused by periods of extremely heavy rainfall, destruction caused by a number of storm cells including Cyclones Tasha, Anthony and Severe Tropical Cyclone Yasi, and subsequent monsoonal flooding including in the Maranoa, have resulted in all Queensland being declared as disaster affected.
