Abstract: The Cape York Region Package (CYRP) is a $260.5 million program of works jointly funded by the Australian and Queensland Governments on an 80:20 basis. It is being delivered over five years: • $200 million to seal sections of the Peninsula Developmental Road (PDR) • $50.5 million for community works in eight Cape York communities • $10 million for sealing works on the Endeavour Valley Road (EVR) An important aspect of the PDR sealing projects is to provide employment opportunities for local Indigenous and non-Indigenous workers, businesses and suppliers, and training opportunities for Indigenous people. Innovation has resulted in outstanding, award-winning results. Biography Sandra has over 25 years experience as a professional engineer and manager in Mining, Local Government and Water Utility. She has extensive strategic planning and project management experience on planning and delivery of major capital infrastructure projects / programs and an exceptional background in operational, asset management of major public infrastructure and services.
