Roadworks are programmed in Barnes Street, near the Henley Street intersection, from Monday 5 February.

This work involves installing a new water main along the eastern side of the road and across the open drain.

Tree removals will be required and replacement plantings will be carried out after works are complete.

During works, the intersection will be under traffic control from time to time and delays may be experienced.

Please observe and obey traffic controllers and signs advising the changes to normal traffic conditions.

Council appreciates your patience and cooperation during this time.

For further information, please email feedback@cairns.qld.gov.au.

Weather permitting, an asphalt overlay is also programmed for the Gordon St / Henley St / Barnes St roundabout on Thursday 8 and Friday 9 February from 8.30am to 5.30pm.

Council appreciates your patience and cooperation during this time.

*PLEASE NOTE: An additional full road closure of Barnes Street is required as part of the drainage works that are underway. This will allow the water main to be reconnected.

The full road closure is programmed for SATURDAY 25 NOVEMBER 2017. Please use the short-term detour via Comet St during this time.

Once the water main has been reconnected the temporary detour via Comet St will be permanently closed.

Please note also that if weather conditions appear unfavourable, the road closure will be deferred to another date. Weather permitting, the project is on track to be fully completed by early December 2017.

Drainage works are programmed to be undertaken on Barnes St, Earlville from Monday 23 October 2017.

This work involves widening the existing drainage culvert underneath Barnes St at Little Clarke’s Creek to reduce the likelihood of flooding to properties upstream that back on to the creek.

To enable the cross road drainage works to be completed quickly and safely, a full road closure of Barnes Street will be required during the works program for two days.

As shown on the plan in Related Documents, a detour via Comet Street will be established during this time.

The drainage project is expected to take 4 weeks to complete, with intermittent delays to traffic flow expected for some of this period.
