This project undertook flood mitigation works to improve the floodway at Blakey's Crossing on Ingham Road. Ingham Road is an important link between Townsville's city centre and its northern outskirts. The project realigned and raised about 800m of roadway and included two new bridges, and significant earth and drainage works. This upgrade ensures access to Townsville's industrial area is maintained during the wet season improving efficiency, capacity and traffic flow during wet weather.
