Roadworks ramping up
MOTORISTS will have to get used to even more roadworks for the next couple of months with major reconstruction scheduled just south of Port Douglas.
The roadworks will begin next Monday on a section of the Captain Cook Highway between Andreassen Rd and Craiglie damaged by wet weather.
The Department of Transport and Main Roads will start the works on October 31 and the reconstruction will be carried out Monday to Friday, from 7am until 5pm.
It is expected the works will be completed by the end of the year, weather permitting.
Traffic will be reduced to one lane and traffic controllers and a 40km/h speed limit will be in place.
Motorists can expect delays of up to 15 minutes through the construction site.
The reconstruction work is being delivered under the Natural Disaster Relief and Recovery Arrangements, a joint federal and state initiative.
LDI Constructions Pty Ltd will undertake the works on behalf of the department.
