Widening the Kuranda Range will create a road to nowhere

by Jim O’Toole*

The Malthusians of the Labor Party and Regional Development Australia Tropical North Chairman David Kempton have joined forces to prevent construction of a new highway linking the Tablelands to Cairns.

While it is a normal progression for the Greens-aligned Labor Party to prevent any northern infrastructure development, former Liberal Party MP and lawyer David Kempton shocked his party by supporting the Marxists.

The 65 year old Barron River bridge is on its last legs according to engineers and would cost up to $700m to replace, nearly double the cost of constructing the Reddicliffe Highway

There has been deafening silence from once staunch Liberal allies Warren Entsch and Michael Trout since Kempton announced his irrational thought bubble of widening the notoriously dangerous Kuranda Range Road.

It will be a road to nowhere as the connecting, 65 year old, ailing Barron River bridge has been declared beyond long-term repair by Main Roads and independent engineers, thus making any range road widening useless.

Former Liberal MP David Kempton has infuriated Tablelands residents by backing the widening of Kuranda Range road

Kempton has infuriated Tablelands residents by ignoring the burning need for an entirely new Kuranda Range Road bypass to link Cairns.

Local Labor Party candidates obviously in consultation with Labor spin doctor and Member for Barron River Craig Crawford had a mRNA-triggered brain occlusion deliriously suggesting a $210m widening of Kuranda Range road, provided of course they were elected.

Neither has any chance of that thus the status quo prevails.

Cairns News has published medical advice since the mRNA Covid vaccinations began 18 months ago that victims’ psychological abilities can be severely impaired by the vaxx and it appears this is now endemic.

Medical advice from world renowned epidemiologist such as Professor Dolores Cahill and Dr Robert Malone warns that the spike proteins in the mRNA are causing serious cardio and nervous system damage.

Dr. Robert Malone, the key developer of the mRNA technology in the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna vaccines, said the spike proteins stayed in the body far longer than first thought.

Prominent cardiologist Dr. Peter McCullough, an epidemiologist, said in a recent podcast it’s known that the vaccines have a “dangerous mechanism of action,” which is “the production of the spike protein.”

“The spike protein is what make the respiratory infection lethal, and it follows that in some people excessive production of the spike protein in a vulnerable person would be lethal after a vaccination,” he said.

Aviation experts have linked an unprecedented number of private aircraft crashes in the US and Europe to mRNA vaxx, and road safety analysts are blaming vaxx-related seizures for the alarming increase in road accidents.

While the Covid chickens are coming home to roost, irrational decisions are being made daily by a highly-jabbed public service and equally messed up politicians.

Tablelands’ residents should not expect any sensible outcome while the accidents keep piling up on the Kuranda Range and the spiked proteins take their deadly course among decision makers.

While the most sensible and cost-effective new route, the Reddicliffe Highway sits on the table, more and more drivers are being injured on the Kuranda Range road.

The sooner Cairns residents and business realise the hinterland drives the largest slice of their local economy the sooner they might get behind the Reddicliffe Highway proposal.
