The Queensland Government is providing funding for the Connolly Dam pipeline upgrade and the Morgan Park sewerage connection in Southern Downs as part of the $400 million Works for Queensland program.
Minister for Local Government, Mark Furner, said he has seen firsthand the benefits that Works for Queensland is having on the Southern Downs community.
“Today we’ve seen a number of projects underway, being built – now we’re announcing another round of funding which means more jobs,” Mr Furner said.
“Through the new round, the Palaszczuk Government will deliver funding for 23 projects which councils advise will create and support around 300 jobs.
“Important community projects like the refurbishment and relocation of the Killarney Scout Building into a multi-purpose facility, a Dungaree commemorative memorial space, and extending and developing the Stanthorpe Industrial area making the Southern Border region an even better place to live and work.
“Through this new round of funding the Southern Downs Regional Council will be able to deliver important infrastructure works which will benefit the entire community now and into the future.”
