DODGY HIGH­WAY TO BE FLAT­TENED OUT

The Weekend Post - - News -

THE gut-wrench­ing roller­coaster ride along the Cairns South­ern Ac­cess Cor­ri­dor will fi­nally be flat­tened in the not-too-dis­tant fu­ture. CBD work­ers who make the daily com­mute along the Bruce Hwy have to con­tend with bile-in­duc­ing un­du­la­tions that only deepen as the road grad­u­ally sinks fur­ther into the swamp. A Trans­port and Main Roads spokes­woman con­firmed those dips and peaks would be smoothed out as part of a $104 mil­lion plan to in­crease the high­way to six lanes from Links Dr to Au­muller St. “The en­tire sec­tion will un­dergo re­con­struc­tion and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion,” she said. “This in­cludes rec­ti­fi­ca­tion of the cur­rent un­even sur­face.” A shared bi­cy­cle and pedes­trian path will also be built.
