Neilly Group (NG) were part of a team, led by Catchment Solutions, which were engaged by the Queensland Government Department of Transport and Main Roads to undertake an assessment of the geomorphologic, flora and fauna values of Janes Creek, located adjacent to Bruce Highway on the northern approaches to Mackay. It has been proposed that a short section of Janes Creek is diverted as part of an upgrade of the Bruce Highway.

NG undertook the geomorphic assessment of Janes Creek, identifying significant features and providing recommendations to aid in the future design of the diversion. The photograph above shows a pool and riffle feature, which are common in the reach of Janes Creek that was assessed.
