Cairns Port development can now be expedited

We would like to share with you a report that has been submitted on the 1st March 2016

To the  Hon Annastacia Palaszczuk, Hon Curtis Pitt, Hon Dr Anthony Lynham, Hon Mark Bailey and Hon Dr Steven Miles.

The report explains how the reasons given for delaying Cairns Port development have been overcome. 

The report recommends how they can now expedite this development so the Cairns Region’s businesses and communities can gain the massive benefits from this development as soon as possible.  The costs to the State would be far lower than the Ports North draft EIS projected, and could even be zero.  The great majority of voters in the Cairns Region strongly support the proposed port development.

Please spend a couple of minutes reading the report’s one-page Executive Summary.  This should convince you that your taking immediate action to expedite this proposal is practical, timely and vital for the Cairns Region.

Please take a further few minutes to send an email to Ports North, the Queensland State Government Minister for Ports and others that may include this demand:

“As a voter and Cairns Region resident, I demand that the Cairns Port Project that widens and deepens the shipping channel be expedited.  I will not accept further delay, and I insist that I and the general public be kept frequently and fully informed.”

Please forward this message and ask people to join Cairns Port Development Inc. Let's make 2016 the year we got the Port of Cairns back on track.    

Thank you for your time.
