LNP to fund road study

The Cairns Post - - NEWS -

THE LNP will in­vest $100,000 to fund a con­cept study on the Cairns Ring Road.

Bar­ron River can­di­date Michael Trout said a pro­posed link be­tween the Bruce and Kennedy High­ways, which would by­pass the Cairns CBD in a bid to re­duce traf­fic con­ges­tion in the city, would be in­ves­ti­gated.

“A prop­erly funded and de­signed ring road would re­duce Cairns city con­ges­tion and al­low heavy ve­hi­cles out of heav­ily-pop­u­lated ar­eas, as well as im­prov­ing freight ac­cess to the port and air­port,” he said.

“It’s all about bust­ing cur­rent and fu­ture traf­fic con­ges­tion and re­mov­ing heavy ve­hi­cles from sub­ur­ban streets.”

“There’s no more time to waste.

“The LNP will get this work done as part of our plan to build the in­fra­struc­ture Far North Queens­land needs.”
