South Rockhampton Flood Levee

This major infrastructure project involves constructing an approximately 8.74km flood levee that extends from the Fitzroy Bridge in Rockhampton CBD to the Bruce Highway (at the intersection with Jellicoe Street) via Quay Street, Wharf Street, Fiddes Street and Jellicoe Street, in the localities of Depot Hill and Port Curtis.

The proposed SRFL is designed to prevent the Fitzroy River flooding parts of Rockhampton’s Central Business District (CBD), Port Curtis and Depot Hill areas during major flood events up to a 1 percent (%) Average Exceedance Probability (AEP) or provide 100 year Average Recurrence Interval (ARI) flood immunity. This will be equivalent to a 9.89m flood gauge level post SRFL construction.
