Works for Queensland

The  Works for Queensland (W4Q) program is a $200 million Queensland Government initiative funded under the State Infrastructure Fund. W4Q is about employing local businesses, creating jobs and stimulating the local economy. The W4Q projects include upgrades to Council-owned park equipment and facilities, shade structures and shelters, foreshore improvements, water and waste, installation of solar panels and more.

In 2018, Council has been allocated $4.07 million under Round 2 of the W4Q funding. Planning and design is currently underway for a number of proposed projects, and an update on selected projects will be announced soon.

Community Consultation has been held regarding the following proposed upgrades, and more information can be found at our online engagement site Your Say Whitsunday:

In 2017, Council was allocated $4.36 million under Round 1 to deliver the below projects.
