IWOULD like to see Adelong St in Gayndah with curbing on the building side, the same as other homes on the street.
Plus in regards to a 50kmh speed sign, at a guess 70% of vehicles are driving well in excess of of the legal speed limit down this street. Please don't think this is a matter for the police as we have tried with no success. So if council place a 50kmh sign maybe a large percentage of drivers would slow down.
Boyd Rd is also a race track with a high percentage of vehicles doing double the speed limit. So I would put the gravel section high on the list to be a sealed one to keep the dust down.
Plus it is a disgrace that you have a gravel road in the town area.
PETER TRANTER, GAYNDAH BOYD RD A RACE TRACK
I HAVE brought this issue up before to the police and council about traffic doing twice the speed limit down Boyd Rd and on to the dirt road which causes so much dust and causes us to have sneezes regularly.
The dust is not too bad at 50kmh, but above that it is unbearable.
This whole area is a speed track, from Boyd Rd, to Kenny Rd and Adelong St.
It needs speed bumps and large signs.

WE KNOW that money doesn’t grow on trees and these days plastic may be fantastic for cashless convenience.
At the same time, these plastic cards may have a wealthy or budget type background and when in the wrong hands problems can result.
Problems include offences being committed, which we may refer to as stealing or fraud.
Our final week of the Property Security Partnership is to raise awareness about fraud.
Fraud offences where unauthorised transactions are made using another person’s bank or credit card are reported and investigated by police.
These offences often occur in retail, food, convenience and service stations that are every day places people visit. As you can imagine, a number of transactions can occur in a short space of time.
Wide Bay Burnett District police solved 26 fraud related offences involving credit cards between August 1 and November 8.
Consider reviewing the terms and use of payWave and contact your financial institution if needed.
Take the time to ensure you keep your financial institution cards safe in a wallet, purse, handbag or appropriate accessory and that they are with you in a secure location at all times possible, not left in a vehicle in sight for opportunistic offenders.
