Projects of Regional Significance

Following the 2016 Local Government Elections, many new Mayors and Deputy Mayors were elected across the region.  Following the Election, WBBROC held a workshop and the new WBBROC members agreed to the following projects of regional significance: 

  • Wide Bay Burnett Minerals Region
  • Port of Bundaberg

  • Telecommunications (blackspots)

  • Water for economic development

  • Regional Export Extension Service

  • Bruce Highway upgrades

  • Freight logistics

  • First and Last Mile project. 

WBBROC Councils are working collaboratively, with the support of the Regional Economic Development Advisory Committee, to achieve the goals for these projects.  WBBROC is also advocating strongly to Ministers and Government generally to gain support for each of these projects.
