$600 million W4Q program

Cherbourg is benefiting from the state governments Works for Queensland (W4Q) program that has steadily rolled out across our community bringing improvements to workplaces and public spaces.

The $600 million W4Q program supports regional Councils to undertake job-creating maintenance and minor infrastructure projects.

One of the recently completed projects was an upgrade to parking at the rear of the The Ration Shed Museum. Historical Precinct President, Aunty Sandra Morgan says the new parking area has meant ease of access to the precinct for visitors, a reduction of dust being blown into the buildings and exhibits and has improved visual appeal.
