Trop­i­cal con­crete

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

Hav­ing writ­ten let­ters for the round­about for years I’m de­lighted to see it’s com­ing, but not the pro­posal elim­i­nat­ing the trop­i­cal de­sign. This is alarm­ing as a good de­sign surely could be achieved. A con­crete ‘‘signed’’ is­land - where is the at­ten­tion to de­sign for the trop­ics? The TMR can do bet­ter. new Dou­glas Coun­cil to come up with some­thing more imag­i­na­tive. It ap­pears that round­abouts pro­vided where Main Roads want them have to have some aes­thetic treat­ment but if they are pro­vided due to com­mu­nity pres­sure then con­crete is all we get.
