This project will connect several remote communities in the Barcoo and Diamantina Shires via optic fibre and provide each community a full suite of communication facilities. The communities involved are Stonehenge, Jundah and Windorah in the Barcoo Shire, and Birdsville and Bedourie in the Diamantina Shire. This project will lay up to 600km of fibre, from Stonehenge to Windorah via Jundah, and Boulia to Birdsville via Bedourie. The Shire has experienced significant exploration and development of oil and gas reserves, and the provision of a modern communication system supports the economic development of the area. This project will improve social connectivity and emergency management in the region.
