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.
