Community

Nexus is dedicated to creating a greater connection with the community.

To do this, we kept stakeholder groups, landholders, businesses and government authorities informed as the project progressed.

We also ensured the community was aware of construction activities ahead of time and every effort was made to minimise construction impacts.


Nexus in the community

From partnering with not-for-profit organisations to helping preserve Toowoomba’s local history, Nexus was proud to support community initiatives throughout the region.

Business Advisory Group

The Toowoomba Second Range Crossing Business Advisory Group (BAG) was developed to provide a consultative forum in relation to Nexus Infrastructure’s building of the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing.

Members included long-standing business owners and community leaders from Betros Brothers, Taylors Removals, Toowoomba Chamber of Commerce, Queensland Department of State Development, Toowoomba and Surat Basin Enterprise, Regional Development Australia, Accession 3, Agforce, Craig’s Home Hardware and LJ Hooker Commercial.

The members of this group:

  • effectively identified issues, opportunities and impacts on local businesses in relation to the construction of the Toowoomba Second Range Crossing
  • provided feedback to the group
  • considered improvement opportunities and initiatives
  • supported the open exchange of information between Nexus and group members.
