Our Cairns engineering projects of recognition
A $3 MILLION rock fall protection wall on the Barron Gorge Rd, described as the first of its kind in north Queensland, has taken out two engineering awards.
The 90m long wall, which was two years in the design and engineering stage by PDR Engineers in Cairns, and took six months to build, was judged Engineers Australia Far North project of the year and took out the $1million to $5 million public works projects category at the Institute of Public Works Engineering Queensland Excellence Awards.
Thursday Island residents are calling recent works to its Engineers Wharf and Victoria Parade area as the best ever by Torres Shire Council.
Located 39 kilometres north of Cape York Peninsula in Queensland, Thursday Island is the administrative and commercial centre of Torres Shire. It covers 3.5 square kilometres and has a population of 3,000 people. Council CEO Bernie McCarthy said this entrance to the historic and beautiful Thursday Island was missing something.
