Reddicliffe Hwy new access to Cairns from Tablelands

Redlynch Valley residents are urged to contact Cairns News at putting ‘new road’ in the subject line and give us your thoughts on this new access.

We will pass on this information to the Main Roads Department.

While the serious crashes continue on the outdated and dangerous Kuranda Range Road the political party players are engaging in one-up-man-ship trying to outbid each other in funding a useless road widening exercise.

The state ALP, which has not spent one cent on new infrastructure on the Tablelands in 20 years, now says federal Labor will put $210m into widening the Kuranda Range Road with its clapped out concrete bridge over the Barron River right in the middle, which will cost $700m to replace. No mention of that.

The proposed new Reddicliffe Highway route above has the support of Liberal member for Leichardt Warren Entsch, God bless him, and he should be re-elected for this initiative.

Cairns News has received a few objections to the new road going through Redlynch Valley. Locals were worried the large volume of traffic would impede traffic flows on Intake Rd.

As can be seen by the map, the new highway overpasses Intake Road in Redlynch Valley and merges with the Western Arterial Road some distance away.

With an on-ramp Redlynch residents will cut ten minutes off their trip to the CBD using the new double lane bypass.

The Reddicliffe Highway has been designed with no expensive tunnels, few bridges and will cut 15 to 20 minutes off the Kuranda Range route from Mareeba to Cairns. The double lane carriageway and a newly designed route will accommodate B-Doubles and even two trailer road trains to access the port.

This new heavy transport concept will be a huge game changer for Cairns Port and rail freight.

And cut the accident rate by 95 per cent.

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

    well,thats a ”no brainer” isn’t it…………


  2. What about the loss of vital habitat of rainforest species and the need to keep as much rainforest as possible for not only biodiversity, but oxygen production??? Make people use their cars more respectfully, by pooling or provide the train service again to Mareeba…it worked for us when we were younger. The railway is far less expensive and invasive and takes more persons so why noit??? Barbara J Gibbs, Dip.Diet& Nut:BA/BSc:Grad.Cert.OSH;TEFL Cert Ganoderma Distributor e’mail:
