Main Roads ‘ignorance’
THE editorial in last week’s Gazette is spot on.
A petition of over 500 residents in 2006 asked for a roundabout because of the alarming number of accidents.
Since “improvements” were made by the Department of Main Roads the numbers have actually risen.
The nameless,faceless (and dare I say brainless) “safety audit committee” of the DMR have concluded that low traffic volume of 5500 a day doesn’t warrant a roundabout which, based on the number of accidents recorded, must make it the most dangerous intersection in all of Queensland.
