Work to start on Cairns airport link to lake Street!
Construction will soon start on a second road link between the Cairns CBD and Cairns Airport.
The project will extend Lake Street by approximately 85m, creating a T-intersection at Airport Avenue.
“The objective of this road is to improve access to the airport! To avoid the road being used as a ‘rat run’ by Sheridan Street commuters, there will be no right turn from Airport Avenue into Lake Street and no left turn from Lake Street.
A new section of cycleway will be constructed concurrently along Airport Avenue and Lake Street, linking via a cyclist crossing function that will be included in the new traffic signals.
The road is expected to be completed in August 2014, weather permitting.
