New Barron River bridge and approaches on the Captain Cook highway - part ii

The Captain Cook highway is the main arterial access to the north of Cairns serving the sugar, timber, dairying, mining, grazing and tourist industries on Cape York Peninsula and the Atherton Tableland. It is also the main access to Cairns for the constantly expanding residential beach suburbs north of the Barron River. This article describes the design and construction of stage ii of the approaches to the Barron River bridge from Saltwater Creek to the temporary connection at Tully Street where stage i finished. Design and construction of the bridge and stage i of the approaches was reported in the December 1977 issue of Queensland Roads.
