TOOWOOMBA council is set to spend 23 million dollars on flood proofing the city after the devastating flood in January.

ALI SHEARER reports.

DUR: 23 secs

TOOWOOMBA City council has asked Regional Development Australia for flood mitigation works around serveral creeks.

TOOWOOMBA Mayor PETER TAYLOR has told local media the works should be completed by 2014.

NEO TOYKO was one of many businesses affected by the floods.

Co owner, CHRIS ROBINS says that the flooding was a freak of nature but is happy to hear the council is putting contingency plans into place.


LW: Anything that can..

LW:… sort of thing

DUR: 10 secs


Anything that can help prevent what happened in January would be fantastic. Its actually a bit of mother nature’s dealing there so it’s a little bit hard to resent that sort of thing.
