Works for Queensland makes a difference to regional areas

More than 720 infrastructure projects, supporting almost 6000 jobs, will become a reality for cities and towns throughout regional Queensland thanks to the Works for Queensland program.

This $200 million initiative is part of a $1 billion investment by the Queensland Government to help create jobs and deliver vital infrastructure throughout regional Queensland. The new program delivers money directly to local councils to support regional job-creating maintenance and minor infrastructure projects designed to provide maximum benefit to communities. Projects include road upgrades, upgrades to council amenities such as libraries, pools, parks and recreational facilities, and the installation of water saving technology.
