Better Infrastructure

Blackjack Creek Flood Mitigation Project

Works to protect the Wandobah Road area from future flood events has commenced.

Gunnedah Shire Council resolved to accept a tender from Daracon Group Gunnedah to undertake works on the Blackjack Creek Flood Mitigation Project.

The $3.2 million project aims to reduce the impact of flooding from Blackjack Creek to properties and residences in the Wandobah Road area.

It is a recommendation of the Blackjack Creek Floodplain Risk Management Study and Plan 2010 to ensure one-in-100 year flood events are contained and surrounding properties are protected.

The project involves creating channel banks and deepening, widening and the realignment of 1.9 kilometres of Blackjack Creek, between McCalls Road and Oxley Highway, to increase capacity. It also includes the installation of storm water pipes under Wandobah Road, and associated road works, as well as the removal and replanting of trees in the area.

Revegetation works in Wandobah Reserve and along Wandobah Road will be staged throughout the project, with approximately 500 trees to be planted in the area, creating a potential koala corridor.
