Com­plain, com­plain

I AM re­spond­ing to a re­cent let­ter ‘Prob­lem on the Road’ from Gil­lian Kuss­mann. She makes a num­ber of points about the re­cent road­works near Du­long Look­out.

She claims that ‘the ma­jor­ity of road users are sim­ply driv­ing straight through the new carpark’.

This is not true. The new road­way is re­ferred to as ‘akin to a ma­jor high­way’ and a ‘moon­scape’. That does seem rather alarmist.

Some ma­ture trees were re­moved, how­ever, so too were many weeds and smaller pest trees. Over­all, the new road­way and car park is an im­prove­ment.

It’s hard to please ev­ery­one. They com­plain that the road is un­safe, then they com­plain when ex­tra road safety signs are in­stalled.

They com­plain that cars drive too fast, then they com­plain when the road is curved to help slow the traf­fic.

They com­plain that the road needs to be im­proved, then they com­plain about the in­con­ve­nience when road­works are car­ried out.
