Track up­grade an is­sue

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FEEDBACK -

RE­GARD­ING pro­posed up­grades of the Dain­tree to Bloom­field track. On the one hand, it could cre­ate prob­lems for the res­i­dents of Bloom­field, Wu­jal and Rossville ar­eas who are used to a cer­tain life­style. But we all have to ac­cept the in­evitabil­ity of change. It could be that hav­ing sealed sec­tions with strict speed lim­its would mit­i­gate im­pacts on the res­i­dents. The com­plaints we get from them in Cook­town are of dust and dan­ger­ous speeds. There is a point of view that the en­vi­ron­ment is there for ev­ery­body and any­body to en­joy, and that the pro­tec­tion of it is a sep­a­rate is­sue.
