Main Roads ‘ig­no­rance’

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

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.
