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.
