This project upgraded approximately 700m of an unused road reserve to complete Bartholdt Drive and evacuation route, which would remain flood-free in a significant flood event. Upgrading Bartholdt Drive has provided greater connectivity for Branyan, which often became isolated during major flood events, and extends the local road network for the general public.
