Bama Civil Supports Indigenous Opportunities on Peninsula Developmental Road Projects
Congratulations to CCF QLD member Bama Civil on successfully tendering for two contracts on Peninsula Developmental Road (PDR) projects in 2018. Bama Civil, an Indigenous civil engineering, building construction and facilities maintenance business, will work on two sealing projects this year. The first is the 1.6 km 10 Mile Creek project and the second is the 4.1 km South of Duck Holes Creek project.
The PDR projects are funded through the Cape York Region Package (CYRP) which is a $260.5 million program of works jointly funded by the Australian and Queensland Governments to upgrade critical infrastructure on Cape York Peninsula.
The CYRP consists of:
- $200 million to seal priority gravel sections of the Peninsula Developmental Road (PDR).
- $10 million to extend the bitumen seal on Endeavour Valley Road (EVR).
- $50.5 million for priority Community Works identified by the Torres and Cape Indigenous Council Alliance (TCICA).
Bama Civil’s experience in culvert and road construction has been developed through subcontracting work with TMR’s commercial arm, RoadTek, on the South of Moorehead project in 2015 and the South of Musgrave project in 2016. Bama Civil will provide positive benefits for the Cape York community through upskilling of the local workforce as these two projects will support an average of twenty direct jobs as well as engagement of local Indigenous businesses through the supply chain.
Bama Civil is currently looking to employ Civil Engineers and experienced civil supervisors. If you are interested, please contact Bama directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
