Traveston Dam gets approval

13 September 2009

The controversial $1.6 billion Traveston Crossing Dam has been given environmental approval and could get the go-ahead from Federal Government within weeks.

Queensland Co-Ordinator General Colin Jensen has signed off on the project – with a host of new environmental conditions, including more protection for endangered fish, frogs and turtles in the Mary River.

Work will start at the site near Gympie by early next year if federal Environment Minister Peter Garrett gives his approval. Bruce Highway upgrades will also begin with the work.
