Current Projects

Council is committed to the revitalisation of the city through its major projects.

Works for Queensland (W4Q)

The Works for Queensland (W4Q) program is delivered under the State Infrastructure Fund to support regional councils to undertake job-creating maintenance and minor infrastructure projects.

Black Spot funded projects

Every year, Council nominates a number of projects that are eligible to receive Black Spot funding from the Australian Government.

Haughton Pipeline Duplication

The Haughton Pipeline provides a bulk water supply link to the Burdekin Haughton Water Supply Scheme.

Lansdown Industrial Precinct

The Lansdown Industrial Precinct is intended to be Northern Australia’s first environmentally sustainable advanced manufacturing, processing and technology estate.

Southern Suburbs Rising Main Project

Stage 2 works will link a recently constructed pump station at Yolanda Drive, Annandale by installing a new sewer pipeline that will link the suburbs of Annandale, Douglas, Idalia, Murray, Oonoonba, Wulguru, Stuart and Cluden with the Cleveland Bay Sewerage Treatment Facility.

Tobruk Memorial Baths Redevelopment

Council plans to invest $17million in the redevelopment of Tobruk Pool

Wordsworth Park Upgrade

Wordsworth Park is the only park space in the suburb of Woodstock and has relatively underdeveloped facility assets. As the only large park in the area, Council has recognised that it has the capacity to be developed into a district destination park that serves Woodstock and surrounding residents. The first stage of this process is to conduct consultations with the community and the key stakeholder groups.

Ingham Road Intersections Upgrade

This project is set to upgrade numerous intersections along Ingham Road as part of the Road Network Augmentation (RN) Program. This is to ensure the safety of the 13,000 vehicles which use the road every day.

Townsville Coastal Hazard Adaptation Strategy

The CHAS Strategy maps and identifies both potential impacts and subsequent strategies to manage the projected effects of climate change to the year 2100.

Floodplain Management Strategy

Flood hazards are a risk to our community, so this project was put in place in 2009 to improve services and plan for flooding.

Mount Louisa Open Space Masterplan

The Mount Louisa Open Space Masterplan will transform the area into one of Townsville’s most popular public spaces by allowing locals and visitors to take advantage of its spectacular vistas of our city and coastline.

Central Park and Dean Street Concept Plan

The Central Park and Dean Street Carpark Concept Design Report has now been finalised. The report provides short, medium and long-term options for what could be built on the site, such as arts and cultural facilities, commercial opportunities, improving public spaces and linking the Stadium Precinct to the heart of the CBD.

Castle Hill Concept Plan

Castle Hill is an iconic landmark offering spectacular 360-degree views over Townsville and our coastline. As one of Townsville’s most visited places, Castle Hill has great activation potential. The Castle Hill Concept Plan is part of the Townsville2020 masterplan and provides a clear vision for our city.

Riverway Splash Water Park

A new Splash Water Park has been proposed for Riverway as part of the Townsville 2020 Masterplan. The Concept plan has now been endorsed by Council and examines ways to make the Riverway Lagoon more family friendly by upgrading facilities in the area.

Priority Development Area (PDA)

This project marks a major milestone in the future planning of Townsville’s CBD with a clear focus on stimulating economic growth in our city heart.

Adapting to Coastal Change

Townsville City Council in partnership with the Queensland Government, is planning for coastal change via the Adapting to Coastal Change in Townsville project.
