26 Public Works Professional November-December 2012 Q AINTERVIEW MICHAEL KAHLER WHAT ARE PUBLIC WORKS PROFESSIONALS DOING ON A DAY-TO-DAY BASIS FOR THE QUEENSLAND RECOVERY PROGRAM? The main food recovery works are the reconstruction of roads, drainage and bridge assets across the state. The food events during 2010/11 and March 2012 have caused around $9.2 billion worth of damage across the state and local government road network. Under the National Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements (NDRR A), the Australian and State Government are providing funding to councils to reinstate essential public assets. Each council is focussed on reinstating food damaged assets to their pre-food event standard, and where practicable within the NDRR A guidelines mitigating the risk of future food damage by improving resilience. Works are in full swing in an attempt to reduce the risk of further food damage from the 2012/13 wet season.
