A NEW Kuranda cemetery is a step closer, with Mareeba Shire Council awarding a $678,000 contract to Ikin Civil to get the project underway.

The existing cemetery has been approaching capacity for a number of years, with council acting in 2021 to purchase land on Kuranda Heights Road for a new facility.

The contract works for Stage 1 of the project include earthworks, roadworks, stormwater drainage, water supply and connection, carparking, landscaping, a toilet block, and concrete works.

Stage 1 will provide burial needs for the next 10-15 years.
