Project update

Underboring and electrical works will start on Lake Morris Rd on Wednesday 18 November.

The road will be reduced to one lane during working hours while the works are in progress.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation.

Overnight road closures of Lake Morris Road will be introduced soon.

This will involve installation of a gate below Campbell's Lookout to stop vehicle access each night, from 9.00pm until 5.00am.

The new 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 also be installed at this location and warning signage will be in place with details about closure and opening times.

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

Any project enquiries can be emailed to feedback@cairns.qld.gov.au.
