RES­I­DENTS FEEL SAFER

Isis Town and Country - - Front Page -

RES­I­DENTS at For­est View have thanked the Bund­aberg Re­gional Coun­cil and the work crew in­volved in the widen­ing of Mor­gan St, Childers.

With the re­cent up­grades com­plete, res­i­dents are feel­ing con­fi­dent and safe when cross­ing the busy road.

The up­grades were a tem­po­rary in­con­ve­nience for the res­i­dents of For­est View as the road works were in progress.

For­est View CEO Jenny Nixon said the res­i­dents were feel­ing safer and they now have a clear view to see on­com­ing traf­fic.

Many res­i­dents read­ily ad­mit they are not as fast as they use to be and the old road made it dif­fi­cult to nav­i­gate with a walker.

The res­i­dents gath­ered on the street for a morn­ing photo shoot with Town and Coun­try to per­son­ally thank ev­ery­one in­volved in the road up­grade.

Mau­rice Graf, a res­i­dent of For­est View, said the res­i­dents are very ap­pre­cia­tive of the re­cent works com­pleted

The street has been widened to en­sure bet­ter vis­i­bil­ity and also lev­elled. Many of the res­i­dents use mo­bil­ity scoot­ers and can now do this in safety.

“They have done an ex­cel­lent job on the up­grade and we can now cross the road safely, thanks to the coun­cil,” Mr Graf said.
