Input on Cape Tribulation Road study encouraged
Submissions are being encouraged on a new Cape Tribulation Road Planning Study.
The Cape Tribulation Road to Mulligan Highway link provides coastal connection between Cairns and Cooktown. Within this link, the Bloomfield Track section presents many operational complexities for its effective management.
As such, Cairns Regional Council, in conjunction with Wujal Wujal Aboriginal Shire Council and Cook Shire Council, has undertaken a Planning Study to discuss and develop the future road management plan for this link road.
Council wants key stakeholders to lodge a submission concerning any environmental, social, cultural and/or economic impacts that the road management alternatives may have on the link.
You can dowload documents and background studies for the Cape Tribulation Road Link Planning Study from Council's website or collect hard copies at the following locations:
- Cairns Regional Council’s offices at 119-145 Spence St, Cairns and 64-66 Front St, Mossman;
- All libraries in the Cairns Regional Council area;
- Cook Shire Council’s administration office, 10 Furneaux St, and the Cooktown library;
- Wujal Wujal Aboriginal Shire Council’s administration office.
Public information sessions, open to all, will be held in November to provide an opportunity for people to ask questions about the various road management alternatives.
If you wish to attend one of these sessions, please RSVP your interest by Friday 16 November 2012 to email: email@example.com or (07) 4044 3303.
