HEADS UP: Possible 20-30 minute delays on the Captain Cook Highway near Oak Beach until early February 2023
Works will occur 6am to 6pm Monday to Saturday, and all road users have been advised to plan 20 minute delays between 6am and 6pm Monday to Saturday.
CairnsAirportShuttle.net may need to adjust some times leaving Port Douglas depending on when the road is closed. At times traffic will be down to 1 lane. At times there will be total closures.
Works are expected to be completed, weather permitting, early February 2023. Works are to remove rocks and debris which will improve road safety, and works will also install rock bolting and nets.
CairnsAirportShuttle.net is very pleased to see these works which have been happening for some years along the highway. For visitors to our region, these works help stablise the highway, improve safety and also reduce the likelihood of total road closures which can happen when major rock slides occur.
Thumbs up Dept. of Transport and Main Roads, and the local contractors, for doing this important work 👍
