Cairns Regional Council will undertake a $1.5 million renewal of the Edmonton West water pump station as part of ten projects to be completed in the next three years, with funding provided from the State Government’s Works for Queensland (W4Q) program.
A report tabled at Council revealed the $12.11 million received from the three-year 2021-24 program is a 44 per cent reduction when compared to the $14.45 million received from the two-year 2019-21 program.
That excluded the $7.4 million of funding received by Council as part of the 2020-21 COVID W4Q round.
The projects funding by the 2021-24 program must be completed by 30 June 2024.
Also among the projects is $1.9 million for kerb and channel renewal, $1.6 million for road reseals, $2.1 million for asphalt overlays, and $600,000 for renewal of the Esplanade Lagoon timber deck.
