Round­abouts out

Sunshine Coast Daily - Caloundra Weekly - - NEWS -

IT ap­pears Ma­roochy­dore is be­com­ing traf­fic light city. It’s get­ting as bad as Syd­ney.

I went there the other day to Bun­nings.

It’s a night­mare get­ting in and out of there.

Noosa sur­vives with round­abouts. This council treats us like id­iots who can’t use a round­about.

I’m 83 and I don’t have a prob­lem with round­abouts.

The roads are badly de­signed with badly de­signed traf­fic lights that cause long de­lays.

It ap­pears mo­torists are get­ting an­gry, you can un­der­stand their frus­tra­tion.

I had two cars drive at me, it was only luck I wasn’t hit.

Who is re­spon­si­ble for this mess?

The Plaza shop­ping cen­tre is an­other night­mare get­ting in and out.

God help us if it doesn’t im­prove after the renovations. They should look at the Gold Coast – no lights; they have over­passes to get you into the shops.

Now to pay for all these in­ef­fi­cient de­ci­sions we are go­ing to get park­ing me­ters so council can waste more money.

Two years ago I asked for a swing in Lake­view Park.

I’m still wait­ing; it gets passed from one per­son to an­other but noth­ing hap­pens. Hey guys, it’s not for me, it’s for the chil­dren.

Although I might sneak a swing. When you spend $300,000 on a pedes­trian refuge, no money is left for the kids.

There are three round­abouts from Mar­coola to Ya­roomba all a short dis­tance from a street that needed a round­about, one of which now has $1 mil­lion traf­fic lights.
