The Cairns Shipping Development Project has reached the next major milestone with the release of the Revised Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) by the Queensland Coordinator-General for public comment.

Hard copies are available at the Cairns City Library (Abbott Street), Smithfield Library (Cheviot Street) and the Queensland State Library (South Brisbane).
Written submissions on the Revised Draft EIS in relation to the Queensland Government’s Terms of Reference have now closed and the EIS is being assessed by the Coordinator General.
