During the wet season the whole of Cape York Peninsula becomes isolated due to flooding. Most rivers rise and subside quickly. However the Laura River can rise quickly and stays up for days and sometimes weeks leaving alot of the communities struggling to supply food in the houses due to stores being low on supplies. We need to think and act about builing a bridge so that we do have access to Cairns and other major shopping areas. Plane fares are expensive and medical supplies are always needed in these areas. Please help us.
