These shelters will help make Queensland safer and more resilient in the event of a cyclone.

The new cyclone shelters are being funded by a gift of $30 million from the Emirate of Abu Dhabi and a further $30 million contribution by the Queensland Government.

Southland has completed the installation of the tank liner membranes in 8 new shelters delivered through the Public Cyclone Shelter Program. The shelters are not only used in emergencies, they will also operate as multi-purpose sports facilities and are available for year-round use by the community.

A full list of the new shelter locations can be found on the Department of Housing and Public Works site here
