The Maranoa construction industry contributed 8.1% to total
industry value add (IVA) in 2016-17 and 8.8% to total employment in 2017-18. Growth in construction activity has subdued, declining by 10.5% in IVA and 3.7% in employment over the analysed period. This has resulted as major construction work associated with gas infrastructure and flood recovery work has eased. In 2016-17, construction contributed to 10.7% of businesses in Maranoa, a decline of 4.6% since 2014-15 (Table A.2). This is due to the transition of projects from the construction phase to operations phase.
