FLOODS HIT PDR

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

RAIN washed the work on the Penin­sula De­vel­op­men­tal Road to a halt, while Au­rukun re­mains cut off by road. A Trans­port and Main Roads (TMR) spokes­woman said the Coen South and Archer to Wolver­ton seal­ing projects, which span 35km, were sched­uled to stop dur­ing the wet sea­son. Cook Shire Mayor Peter Scott said the shire’s north­ern re­gions were the worst af­fected by the rain. “North of Laura has flooded over the cross­ing, but we’re grate­ful that TMR have flood cam­eras there to mon­i­tor it,” he said.
