Await­ing re­sponse

Isis Town and Country - - News -

AS MORE roads in need of up­grades pop up across the Isis there are two that can not be forgotten.

Isis Cen­tral res­i­dents spoke out in Town & Coun­try on March 5 about the danger­ous in­ter­sec­tion where Adies Rd meets the Bruce Hwy.

They spoke of sev­eral crashes and near-misses at the site, which they said was danger­ous due to a bend in the high­way.

Mo­torists in­tend­ing to turn into Adies Rd are hid­den by the bend, and there were sev­eral in­stances where cars and trucks al­most col­lided.

Bur­nett MP Stephen Bennett helped lodge a pe­ti­tion on that day, and this week said he was still to hear from Trans­port and Main Roads.

“The lo­cal re­gional direc­tor Scott Whittaker did meet with the res­i­dents and agreed it needed some at­ten­tion,” Mr Bennett said.

“They have some flex­i­bil­ity for spend­ing but we are wait­ing on more on that.”

The other case was at Bootharh Rd at Isis River, which fea­tured on April 16.

Res­i­dent Frank Har­ris showed Town & Coun­try how the road de­te­ri­o­rated dur­ing last Fri­day’s down­pour.

Mr Har­ris con­tin­ues to gather signatures for a pe­ti­tion, and said he had gar­nered “quite a bit” of sup­port.
