The results of the DSRA survey indicates that there is a clear preference for a Bridge option (51% of respondents), with 27% selected the One Ferry Option (no change) and finally 22% for the Two Ferry Option.
A sample size of
5% - 10% is considered statically relevant and we received a 20% response rate so we are pleased that the result is considered statistically relevant.
It should be noted that there were 3 conditions applied regardless of option selected.
- All options must have a toll system which will as a minimum cover costs
- Funding of a bridge build is contingent on State and/or Federal funding.
- Traffic flow into the Daintree can be managed if needed i.e. a boom gate system
The DSRA have provided the Douglas Shire Council with details of the results.
