Cairns Ring Road

By provision of senior project management personnel, in partnership with DTMR Lackon is currently responsible for the delivery of the Cairns Ring Road Project. Significant congestion on the Captain Cook Highway was identified to be constraining access to the Cairns Port from the north and west of Cairns, and access between the Cairns Port and Airport. Currently there is no easy access to connect the Cairns Port and Cairns Airport with the region's agricultural producing areas within the Atherton Tablelands, Cape York Peninsula and Mossman.

Senior Lackon management personnel are involved in the planning, design and construction of road upgrades between the corner of Comport and Draper Streets in Cairns CBD to the intersection of the Captain Cook and Kennedy Highways, and Mount Millman Drive in Smithfield to ease congestion and improve connectivity between key activity hubs in the region. The project will also deliver early works on the Airport Avenue to James Street section of the Captain Cook Highway and may include an additional lane between Moffat Street and Lily Street, closure of some existing median breaks, intersection upgrades and changes to Passenger Transport arrangements.
