Hwy closed for triathlon

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

THE quick­est way to get from Port Dou­glas to Cairns on Sun­day, 5 June, will be to join the USM Chal­lenge Cairns triathlon.

Un­less you’re dressed in ly­cra, you’ll have to take the long way around while hun­dreds, if not thou­sands, of ath­letes cy­cle around (and around) Port Dou­glas all day long.

The Cap­tain Cook High­way will be closed to all non-event traf­fic all day, from 7am un­til 4.30pm. If you do want to drive to Cairns that day, the or­gan­is­ers are ad­vis­ing res­i­dents to leave Port be­fore 6am.

Old Port Rd will be closed all day, al­though traf­fic will be al­lowed to cross un­der su­per­vi­sion be­tween Nau­tilus St and Ulysses Ave.

There will be fur­ther cross­ing points at Lan­g­ley Rd, Seabrook Ave, Ma­hogany St, Blake St and Mow­bray St.

Con­trolled traf­fic will be per­mit­ted along one lane of Port Dou­glas Rd be­tween Ma­hogany St and Old Port Rd.
