Look­out up­grade on draw­ing board

Tablelands Advertiser - - NEWS -

PLAN­NING for a $300,000 up­grade of the Henry Ross Look­out on Ku­randa Range Road has be­gun.

Mem­ber for Bar­ron River Craig Craw­ford said the up­grade was part of the Palaszczuk Gov­ern­ment’s $3.2 mil­lion Scenic Look­out Up­grade Pro­gram.

“The Henry Ross Look­out is a pop­u­lar stop for many vis­i­tors and lo­cals driv­ing through the Ku­randa Range,” he said.

“The view back over the cane fields and out to the Great Bar­rier Reef is an iconic Far North Queens­land panorama.”

Mr Craw­ford said Trans­port and Main Roads would con­sult with key stake­hold­ers be­fore fi­nal­is­ing the de­sign.

Work will be car­ried out by Road­Tek and is ex­pected to be com­pleted by late June, weather per­mit­ting.
