Cyclone Debbie Recovery work

In late March 2017, tropical Cyclone Debbie and her powerful winds thrashed the North Queensland Coast leaving a trail of destruction with damage spanning from the Whitsundays through to Mackay, including Bowen, Collinsville and Airlie Beach as well as surrounding areas.

Project Management office were asked to Travel North and assist Roadtek Mackay with the Emergency and rectification works across these regions.

Artcraft was able to deliver a detailed and comprehensive report to Roadtek Mackay of the damaged signage. The best way to accumulate the severity of the damage and requirements was to sight/audit all areas. It soon became apparent that the scale of damage in these areas was overwhelming, with emergent works spaning over numerous roads.

A large distance was covered by Artcraft, with over 5000kms driven to ensure all signage was correctly audited with 2000+ signs recorded and documented in the report. The audit was compiled by utilising previous digital video recording logs. These logs enabled the Artcraft team to reconcile between what had been affected and what was deemed suitable to remain.

Our Installation Team were tasked with mobilising to site, removing damaged signs and re-installing new ones.

It is estimated that this project was worth $ 900k over the course of 3 months, with works still on going
