Woes on the range

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

THE costly and in­ef­fec­tive road­works on the Rex Range con­tin­ues to drag on.

The two elec­tronic sign­boards are cost­ing $96,600 a year and the two traf­fic lights are cost­ing $90,000 a year from Coates Hire, on top of oc­ca­sional traf­fic con­trol per­son­nel.

On Satur­day one set of lights was stuck on green and so up­hill traf­fic con­tin­ued driv­ing through whereas down­hill traf­fic was con­tin­u­ally back­ing up.

Some friends of mine called me while stuck at the lights for 10 min­utes not know­ing what to do.
