Florence St upgrades on the way
Over the weekend the Cairns Council announced that they will be spending $17m on redesigning Florence Street between Sheridan and the Esplanade. The money will go to removing the roundabout and installing a 9m wide undercover footpath from the Cairns Performing Arts Centre to the Esplanade. Included in the redevolpment will be a multistorey car park to ease parking shortages with the performing arts precinct and the Cairns Aquarium.
To get a better understanding of this wonderful news I spoke with Deputy Mayor, Cr Terry James. Terry explained that a lot of planning work has already been done and they are looking at starting construction in 2018.
