This first stage of the culvert replacement will be completed by mid-December 2022, weather and construction conditions permitting. Following this, crews will remove all equipment from the site and pedestrian access will return to the eastern side of the crossing.
To reduce the risk of prolonged community impacts, the Department of Transport and Main Roads will deliver the second stage of the project after the 2023 wet season.
The second stage of the culvert replacement will include installation of the footpath on the western side of the crossing. Staggering the stages of works will ensure this section of Captain Cook Highway is open to two-way traffic over the school holiday period and during the wet season.
A date for commencement of the second stage of works will be advised closer to start of construction, after April 2023.
The department appreciates your patience during the works and thank you for understanding the change to construction timeframes for the project.

(10 August 2022)
Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) will be carrying out culvert replacement works on Captain Cook Highway (CCH), at Parker Creek Crossing, Mossman, from late August 2022, weather and construction conditions permitting.
The culvert upgrade will include installation of a pedestrian footpath on the western side of the crossing to improve pedestrian safety and connectivity to the Mossman CBD.
This $1.7 million project forms part of the $400 million Queensland Government’s COVID-19 stimulus package. The project will involve replacing the culvert under the road and carrying out resurfacing works over the culvert crossing and implementing a new footpath on the western side.
The works will be carried out as a combination of day and night works to minimise the impact on nearby businesses, residents and road users. Crews will be onsite between 6 am and 6 pm for day works and between 6 pm and 6 am for night works.
For the safety of road users and maintenance crews, changed traffic conditions will be in place, including reduced speed limits and single lane operation under coordination of traffic controllers at times during the works. Road users should expect minor delays and plan their journeys accordingly.
Variable Message Signs (VMS) will be in place on the approaches to the work site to ensure motorists are aware of the changed traffic conditions. Changes in dates due to poor weather will be posted on the VMS.
The project is expected to be completed in early 2023, weather and construction conditions permitting.
