THE OPEN ROAD

As a long­time sub­scriber to your beau­ti­ful mag­a­zine, it was a lovely sur­prise to read about the Kir­rama Range Road (KRR) in the fea­ture ar­ti­cle Into the Wet (AG 138). For many years ne­glected by the ‘au­thor­i­tar­ian pow­ers’, the road was re­opened af­ter Cat­e­gory 5 Trop­i­cal Cy­clone Yasi, in 2014. My el­dest son, Ben de Bruin, was very much in­volved in the KRR Sup­port Group, which had my sup­port, too. I wrote this poem en­ti­tled ‘The Peo­ple’s Road’ (see ex­tract, right) about the KRR, which was pub­lished by some local pa­pers and was also fea­tured on the in­ter­net.
