The damage included fallen and damaged trees and debris on the road and within the road reserve.
In the aftermath of the cyclone, the Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) and Livingstone Shire Council (LSC) have initiated a program of removing the fallen or damaged trees and debris from the road carriageway to make safe the state controlled road network.
The intent of the program, which is in the scope of the Natural Disaster Response and Recovery Actions (NDRRA), is to remove fallen trees and debris, and those identified as unsafe or needing branch removal.
Environmental officers have been on site to identify trees that are safe and will be retained, by marking with a pink ribbon. Damaged trees will be identified with pink spray paint crosses.If you require further information about this recovery work please contact Livingstone Shire Council.
