Captain Cook Highway - Smithfield Bypass

A new bypass road is being built which will improve traffic conditions on the Smithfield road network by addressing congestion on the section of the Captain Cook Highway (CCH) between McGregor Road and the intersection of CCH and the Cairns Western Arterial Road. In particular, at the Smithfield, and Captain Cook Highway and Cairns Western Arterial Road roundabouts.

The Cairns Western Arterial Road is being upgraded to 4 lanes from the southern connection of the bypass to the traffic signals at Caravonica State School, including installing new traffic signals at the Skyrail Drive intersection.
