CORRECTION: A previous version of this article was headlined ‘Fitzroy Crossing ‘humanihuts’ workers accommodation site hits snag’ accompanied by a photograph of Humanihut temporary accommodation. In fact, while Humanihut was contracted to provide temporary accommodation and infrastructure solutions to remote communities devastated by flood waters in Western Australia’s Fitzroy Valley - which were delivered on time in March and are currently in use - they were not contracted for the portable living structures required for flood recovery workers. Humanihut has worked in consultation with the local communities to establish temporary accommodation hubs, to which residents can relocate while repair work is undertaken on their homes. We clarify that Humanihut has not been engaged to provided accommodation for flood recovery workers in Fitzroy Crossing and the organisation says it has no commercial relationship with Rio Tinto. We apologise for the error. The WA Government’s plan to accommodate flood recovery workers in Fitzroy Crossing in mobile living quarters has hit a snag with the portable living quarters missing their delivery date to the flood-ravaged town. On March 2, the State Government announced it would receive $4 million worth of temporary accommodation from mining giant Rio Tinto, enough to house up to 40 flood recovery workers. The mobile living quarters were set to arrive in Fitzroy Crossing, which was hit hardest by January’s devastating floods, by the end of April but now with the end of May in sight the accommodation is still yet to arrive. In response to questions from Agricultural Region MLC Martin Aldridge in Parliament on May 17, Emergency Service Minister Stephen Dawson said the camp was still being established. “Site works and infrastructure is still being completed at the workers camp location,” he said. In reaction to the news, Mining and Pastoral Region MLC Neil Thomson said the delay was another disappointing development for the people of Fitzroy Crossing. “The delay of the delivery of workers accommodation to Fitzroy Crossing is just another delay in a long series of setbacks in the Government’s flood response,” he said. “We knew back in January that accommodation was going to need to be a priority. It is vital to get workers accommodation and accommodation for the 150 or so people displaced in Fitzroy Crossing who can’t return home. “It is very sad and disappointing for the community there.” It is not known when the temporary accommodation will arrive in Fitzroy Crossing.
