Roads damaged by the February floods will be rebuilt to a higher standard in the latest round of recovery projects funded by the Commonwealth and Queensland Governments.
Federal Minister for Natural Disaster and Emergency Management David Littleproud said $14.9 million in new approvals .
"In Cloncurry $9.4 million go to improving Sedan Dip Road, which was cut for weeks," Mr Littleproud said.
"Upgrades on the Richmond to Winton Road and Kennedy Development Road also have the go-ahead."
Cloncurry Mayor Greg Campbell welcomed the funding.
"Council has been progressively doing bitumen sealing on the Sedan Dip Rd," Cr Campbell said.
"This new funding will enable us to seal the entire road from Cloncurry to Ernest Henry Mine to the link road to the McKinlay Shire border."
Additionally, Carpentaria Shire Council will receive $734,500 as part of the Water and Sewerage package to repair numerous parts of the Normanton Sewerage Treatment Plant that were damaged during the Monsoon Trough.
Queensland Minister for State Development Cameron Dick said the latest infrastructure package also includes more than $3.2 million to ensure Far North Queensland stays open for visitors.
"A gravel section of the Cape Tribulation-Bloomfield Road within Donovan's Range will be concreted and fitted with improved drainage to provide greater accessibility for residents and visitors during the wet season," Mr Dick said.
Betterment, Recreational Assets and Water and Sewerage Infrastructure submissions are part of the $242 million Category C/D Recovery Package jointly funded by Commonwealth and Queensland Governments under the Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA).
