As part of the 2013 NDRRA programme, Pensar Civil was engaged by Tablelands Regional Council to complete the construction of a 300m river crossing over the Gamboola Mitchell River in far Noth Queensland.

The project was an important initiative for the local community to improve flood immunity and reduce yearly maintenance costs. The crossing is a popular tourist route and a critical transport ink for numerous cattle stations to access vital services and trade centres.
