Cross­ing re­opens af­ter rain

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

THE Bloom­field Cross­ing was re­opened on Sun­day af­ter the re­cent heavy rain.

The sud­den, un­pre­dicted and heavy rain that fell in the re­gion - with an un­of­fi­cial record­ing at China Camp of over 450mm in 48 hours - flooded the cause­way last week.

While it is now open for all traf­fic sub­ject to tides and rain­fall, any­one plan­ning to travel on the Bloom­field Track is urged to check on road con­di­tions be­fore set­ting off.
