Flinders Shire Council is planning to upgrade roads, walkways, irrigation, tree beautification and the construction of the first stage of a new lawn cemetery at the Hughenden Cemetery.

Before work commences, Council will hold a public information session at the Cemetery Rotunda between 11:00am and 2:00pm on Tuesday 2nd September 2014, where the community can be informed of Council's proposed work.

All members of the Flinders Shire Community are welcome to attend.

Hann Highway Development

Sealing of the remaining 110km of the Hann Highway (Kennedy Development Road) between Hughenden and The Lynd will provide for an all-weather second access to the TNQ region in the event that the Bruce Highway is disrupted.

Sealing of the highway opens a more direct and cost efficient route to southern markets, and facilitates increased regional tourism.

The attached letter template is a suggested letter you could write to your local and federal member in support of the sealilng of the Hann Highway. This initiative came out of a Hann Highway Action Group meeting at Oak Park on 3 July 2014. Please feel free to amend this as you see fit. 

Advance Cairns acknowledges the work of the Hann Highway Action Group, the Etheridge and Flinders Shires, Local, State and Federal members in the region in support of this work, and the many others in the community who see the strategic and economic benefit of sealing the Hann Hgihway for the region.
