Roundabout construction onto phase two
THE Port Douglas roundabout is well on track for a pre-Christmas completion. Member for Cook David Kempton said he received advice from the Department that crews have completed the first phase of construction and have started phase two which involves switching traffic to the eastern side of the Captain Cook highway at the Port Douglas Road intersection. ‘‘I am happy to see the project progressing so quickly and look forward to organising a meeting with community members to discuss future plans for the landscaping once construction has wrapped up,’’ Mr Kempton said. The latest news comes less than two months after Mr Kempton stopped the plans for a concrete-centre roundabout.
