July 2nd Road Report
Mareeba to Bamaga
No major changes since the last report. Dirt sections are mostly good through to the “Y”. Section from Coen to Archer River is in good condition but slow for creek crossings and there is some rock protruding through road surface in places.
Road north of the Y to Bramwell Junction is good but be prepared to slow down for creek crossings, some are not signed. The previous approx. 10km bad section before the Jardine Ferry has been graded and is now very good. The road from the Ferry to Injanoo is now also graded and is very good. Quite a bit of traffic was on the road due to the Laura Races and the start of the school holidays. Eftpos was out of service at Musgrave roadhouse and caught some travellers out that needed fuel, a reminder to carry some cash just in case.
