Nail dan­ger for road­side trav­ellers

Central and North Burnett Times - - NEWS -

HAND­FULS of nails were scat­tered all over the en­trance to an overnight rest-stop in Monto this week­end.

Tas­ma­nian car­a­van trav­eller Glenn What­ley dis­cov­ered the nails on Mon­day morn­ing and said he be­lieved it was a de­lib­er­ate act.

He said they were scat­tered evenly over the 5m x 3m sec­tion of road lead­ing in to the area at the end of Monto’s main street.

“I spent about four hours pick­ing them up,” he said.

The area has not been ap­proved as an RV rest stop by North Bur­nett Re­gional Coun­cil.

Kay and Brian Bridekirk de­fended their de­ci­sion to stay at the gravel area near the Monto rail line, stat­ing there was an app pro­mot­ing the site on Wiki-camps.

“Every­one with an iPad uses this app to find out about free camp­sites; that’s why you’ll be see­ing peo­ple pull up here,” Mr Bridekirk said last month.

“And we will all as­sume it’s al­lowed if it’s up on the web­site.”
