Weir work along the Fitzroy could start within two years

WORK could start on Rookwood and Eden Bann weirs within two years if all of the ducks were to fall into line, Member for Capricornia Michelle Landry said yesterday.

A report in yesterday's Morning Bulletin inaccurately said it would take up to 10 years before work would get underway on key water infrastructure projects on the Fitzroy River.

Ms Landry said she was referring to the proposed Gap dam in relation to this timeframe.

She said if all the necessary approvals were put in place, and funding obtained, work could get underway on the weirs within two years.
