Griffith City Council has allocated more than $ 2 million in grants to deal with the floods for Yogali and Hanwood. Recently, proposals have been extended to the Yoogali Dam and Pipe Upgrade Project, as well as to the Hanwood Dam Development and Road Construction. However, there was a remark that the council should contribute a third of this to the project. With Yogali receiving $ 1,040,000 in funding and Hanwood receiving even more than $ 1,240,000, the council’s budget is receiving a significant blow of $ 760,000. A three-stage flood relief plan was recommended in Yoga. The first phase, which involves upgrading the McCormack Road and Bosanquet Road interchanges and the McCormack Road and Burley Griffin Way interchanges, has already been completed. Next steps will include the construction of a dam along McCormack Road and the subsequent raising of the Burley Griffin Road.

Mayor Doug Curran said he was pleased that the board had provided funding. “The council is committed to ensuring that all necessary flood relief work is carried out to avoid another situation, such as the 2012 flood,” he said. “It is fantastic that we are able to cover a third of the project with a cash contribution,” he added.
