Inspections to Cape Tribulation Road 4th August

Cairns Regional Council would like to advise that inspections are required on some bridges on Cape Tribulation Road. Inspection times are as follows:

WED 4 AUGUST 2010 - 6am to 6pm

  • Oliver Creek Bridge - Expect minor delays.
  • Rykers Crossing – Expect minor delays.

WED 4 AUGUST 2010 – 8pm to 6am

  • Hutchinson Creek Bridge - Road closed.
  • Noah Creek Bridge - Road closed.

As Hutchinson Ck and Noah Ck are one-lane bridges, the road will need to be closed while this work is being carried out.

To minimise disruptions, one-lane bridge inspections will be carried out overnight as specified above. Traffic will be let through for emergency situations.

Each inspection will take approximately 3-4 hours.

Council thanks you for your patience and co-operation and apologises for any inconvenience caused.

For further information, please contact me.
