Patrick Moore - Roads development

Posted March 27, 2015


Isaac Regional Council west operations engineer Patrick Moore was once part of a team tasked with building 26km of haul road in a remote area near Cloncurry with a three-month deadline and a tight budget.

Now his focus is on the development and improvement of roads in the northern Bowen Basin.

Over the next 12 months Mr Moore will be involved with a number of upgrade projects.

“Our key priorities include investigating methodologies to improve black soil and poor foundations on our rural roads, and programming and tracking our rural road re-sheeting programs,” he said.

“We’ll also be carrying our various floodway upgrade projects to improve flood immunity and functionality, and repair aged infrastructure.

“I’ll also be assisting with a multitude of design and construction projects and working to improve the efficiency of Council’s construction teams.”

Mr Moore is a husband, father to two kids and sibling to 12 brothers and sisters. He says it can be a challenge to juggle work with family time.

“I’ve been married for 12 years and have two children, a boy and a girl, aged seven and nine,” he said.

“One of my proudest personal achievements was in the space of one week, I moved my family from Mackay to Rockhampton, my wife had her second child, and I started my own consulting business,” he said.

“I make designated family time, and do my best to balance this with work demands.”

Outside office hours, Mr Moore said he liked to hit the surf and spend time with his kids.
