Leu’s ire

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

FROM PAGE 1 rep­re­sen­ta­tions by the Gazette, Min­is­ter for Road Safety Mark Bailey re­jected re­quests for traf­fic su­per­vi­sors for Port Dou­glas State School, yet boasted at the end of the let­ter that the state gov­ern­ment had set aside fund­ing for an ad­di­tional 75 su­per­vi­sors!

On Port FM ra­dio this week Ms Leu re­ferred to long­stand­ing frus­tra­tion be­tween the shire and the Depart­ment of Trans­port and Main Roads, which she also ex­pressed to Ms Trad.

“I out­lined to her the dif­fi­cul­ties we have been fac­ing with get­ting the DTMR to lis­ten to us about the Port Dou­glas cross­ing.

“We seem to be al­ways hav­ing prob­lems with the DTMR and their com­mu­ni­ca­tion with us – for in­stance the melaleu­cas by the road at Mow­bray that were cut down last year.”
