The Territory Government is delivering critical flood mitigation works with the Yarrawonga Catchment now complete.
Upgraded works include the enhancement of the Yarrawonga Road drainage and installation of new culverts under Wallaby Holtze Road – overall reducing the risk and impact of flooding events in Yarrawonga.
Upgrades to drainage measures are happening more broadly with works also occurring on the Stuart Highway improving the corridor and stormwater drainage on Tulagi Road – creating 50 jobs.
This job creating infrastructure project and others similar to this are part of the flood mitigation measures recommended by the Darwin Flood Mitigation Advisory Committee.
