Govt work will mean jobs in Moss­man

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

STATE-COMMONWEALTH­fund­ing will sup­port two projects in the Moss­man area, both of which will cre­ate lo­cal jobs:

• Dou­glas Shire Coun­cil will re­ceive $120,000 to­wards a $200,000 project to un­der­take de­tailed mod­el­ling of flood­ing and mit­i­ga­tion mea­sures for a levee bank near Marrs Creek, John­son Road.

• Coun­cil will also re­ceive $48,000 to­wards a $80,000 project to in­stall au­to­mated ‘road closed’ warn­ing signs with flash­ing lights at each end of Anich’s Bridge, which is lo­cated on Fin­lay­vale Road.

“This project will make it safer for mo­torists us­ing Anich’s Bridge by alert­ing them to the clo­sure of the flooded cross­ing and pre­vent­ing pos­si­ble harm,” MP War­ren Entsch said.

“Highly vis­i­ble warn­ings such as flash­ing lights are needed be­cause the road is sub­ject to flash flood­ing.”
