FLOODS HIT PDR
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.
