Townsville City Council awarded CivilPlus Constructions the contract of upgrading the Paluma Dam Spillway in Paluma. Work commenced onsite on 08/09/2021.
The project objective was to construct a reinforced concrete spillway with anchors into the rock foundation.
The existing dam spillway is a natural rock formation of granite. The granite became weathered and started to decompose, which could adversely affect supporting structures like the spillway bridge and dam ogee weir. Townsville City Council upgraded the spillway to prevent its deterioration. The project was completed on 20/12/2021.
