This road is the worst, reckons Scott

CAIRNS based Scott Melhuish drives a Western Star 4900 Stratosphere for Lumbars Transport and had carted zinc concentrate from Chillagoe to Townsville when Big Rigs saw him.

"I am waiting on a backload to take back to a mine at Mungulla,” he said.

The Lumbars depot he works from is at Mt Garnet which is more than a two hour drive from Cairns.

"I have been a truck driver for five years and used to work for Tuxworth and Woods,” he said.

Scott likes stopping at the Oasis Roadhouse near the Lynd Junction with the Hann Highway when on the road.

"The worst road I get on is between Mt Garnet and Chillagoe and the first truck I drove was an old International,” he said.

Outside work, Scott loves spending time with his wife.
