TNRP Flood Reconstruction Project


The Transport Network Reconstruction Program (TNRP) program of works in the Darling Downs and Metropolitan Regions resulted from the following National Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRRA) events:


  • Queensland Flooding and Tropical cyclones Tasha and Anthony (November 2010 – February 2011).

  • Western Queensland Tropical Low (27 January – February 2012)

  • Tropical Cyclone Oswald and Associated Rainfall and Flooding (21 – 29 January 2013)

  • Central and Southern Queensland Low (25 February – 5 March 2013).


A Regional Program Office was established to manage the program of reconstruction projects in the Darling Downs and Metropolitan Regions.  This involved identification, prioritisation and packaging of the damaged roads, the design of the reconstruction works, the procurement and contract administration of the road/bridge construction contractors, and managing the submissions to the Queensland Reconstruction Authority (QRA) for approval of federal funding of the program.
