Roads need fixing
GREAT to see the new bridge over the Burnett River on the Monto – Mt Perry road completed. As mentioned in the “Our Say” column the rest of the unsealed road needs fixing now as Monto people in droves have to use this road to access health services not available locally.
The article in the paper quoted the Minister for Main Roads, Mark Bailey as saying that as the new bridge had been built wider and higher “communities such as Mt Perry and Eidsvold will not be as significantly impacted as they have been in the past”.
I hope the minister has been misquoted as his geography is not too good. I think most people will agree that the Monto area will be impacted far greater than Eidsvold and Mt Perry.
