WORKS are nearing completion on the newly installed pedestrian lights at Mareeba’s Post Office Centre crossing on Byrnes Street. 

Works to Mareeba’s main street began in May this year with the installation of wombat crossing in several areas of the CBD. 

The Department of Transport and Main Roads has revealed that the works are due to be completed within weeks.

“Safety works are nearing completion on Byrnes Street, they included the installation of four raised pedestrian facilities and the signalisation of a fifth pedestrian crossing near the post office complex,” a spokesperson said. 

“Minor electrical works will complete the project.

“We expect the new signalised crossing to be operational next month (October), construction and weather conditions permitting.”
