Paroo Shire Council NDRRA

Project scope

Brown Contractors was appointed by Golding Contractors to perform the major re-construction of flood-affected roads within the Paroo Shire Region. Works included heavy formation grading, gravel re-sheeting, bulk haulage, and drainage repairs.


The scope consisted of 2500 work sites spread across a 200 km radius. Effective planning was crucial to the success of the project due to travel and communication issues. The frequently changing work scope required an adaptive approach to construction methodologies.
