  • Location: Lake Morris Rd, Kanimbla
  • Description: Residents were asked about nightly road closures to stop vehicle access to Lake Morris Rd.
  • Status: Closed
  • Consultation period: 9:00am 05/06/2020 to 5:00pm 26/06/2020

To avoid hooning disturbances and associated issues, Council is proposing to stop vehicle access to Lake Morris Road each night, from 8.00pm until 6.00am.

This will involve installation of a gate below Campbell's Lookout, near property 50 Lake Morris Road - please refer to the concept plan ( PDF, 1.27 MB ) for details.

The gate will be controlled via remote computer access. A sensor will allow vehicles to exit downhill to the Cairns Western Arterial Road but it will prevent uphill vehicle access during the above times.

CCTV surveillance will be installed at this location and warning signage will be in place with details about closure and opening times.

All hours road access would still be possible for cyclists and pedestrians.

To provide feedback about these changes or to request additional information, please email feedback@cairns.qld.gov.au by FRIDAY 26 JUNE 2020.
