Ogilvies Road prob­lems

Mansfield Courier - - OPINIONS/PEOPLE -

BRAD and Jan­ice Rodger wel­come with love Hay­den Leigh Rodger, born at Mans­field Hos­pi­tal on Oc­to­ber 18 at 6:42pm. Hay­den is a lit­tle brother for Ada (3yrs) and Re­nae (2yrs). Hay­den is also a new grand­son for Ros Davies of Mans­field, and Barry and Joy Rodger of Chin­chilla. Brad and Jan­ice would like to thank the Mans­field District Hos­pi­tal, and their amaz­ing mid­wives - Gretchen and Michelle.

I WAS mys­ti­fied when I read the ar­ti­cle on page 2 of last week’s Courier.

As a daily user of Ogilvies Road, I can cat­e­gor­i­cally state that re­pairs haven’t com­menced, and the as­ser­tion that the works will be com­pleted by the fol­low­ing week is lu­di­crous.

Res­i­dents re­ceived a let­ter from the con­trac­tor in­form­ing them that re­pairs would be­gin on Oc­to­ber 23 and be fin­ished within two weeks.

The only sign of any ac­tiv­ity since then has been a parked roller.

The picture in­cluded with the ar­ti­cle was clearly taken dur­ing the orig­i­nal resur­fac­ing project, and in no way rep­re­sents any cur­rent ac­tiv­ity.

When can res­i­dents ex­pect some re­al­is­tic in­for­ma­tion from the con­trac­tor, and get to drive on the qual­ity of road the shire has paid for?

Ian Todd, Mans­field
