This project will include the following components:

During construction, lane closures will be required. There will also be temporary disruptions to property driveways and car parking  however, we will minimise inconveniences wherever possible. Road closures may also be required during the works program.

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

Council appreciates your patience and cooperation during this time. Please email feedback@cairns.qld.gov.au for further information.
