Roadworks take time
JOHN Phillips (letters, 16/4) on his road to nowhere comment is not comparing apples with apples in reference to the sink hole that appeared in Sheridan St in the city, and the Sandy Creek crossing at Mt Peter Rd south of Edmonton that was washed away in a significant rain event in February.
A steep gully and cut out at the Sandy Creek crossing requires pipes to be manufactured and transported back to Cairns to undertake the works.
I arranged a letter to be sent to all affected residents detailing works to be done and a time frame.
I organised an on-site meeting with about 40 interested residents last Sunday and have arranged a meeting with their representatives and the engineer to understand the structural integrity issues of the works.
Works will start this month, weather permitting, with the road partially opened in early May and the job completed early June 2018. Cr Brett Moller, Cairns Regional Council, Division 1
