Why the criticisms on the Jetty foreshores? I READ the whinges and the gripes about the new work on the Jetty Foreshores across Facebook and reader comments to the Advocate.
Far out, the government and council threw decent money into a worthwhile project that improves Coffs Harbour and people still whinge.
If the shade is an issue, wear a hat.
If the steps are too hot, jump into Jetty Beach. Enough said.
Look, bigger picture, people.
Thank you to all involved. This has been the best money I’ve seen spent in Coffs Harbour this year. Keep up the good work. Coffs must focus on the families, locals and tourists loving the new facilities every day and not the noisy minority.
Not a fan of city’s sports tourism push WE CANNOT just rely on our sport to bring visitors into Coffs Harbour, there has to be much, much more.
Just look at Port Macquarie, they are going ahead in leaps and bounds and we are going backwards.
The much-needed Pacific Highway bypass is happening when?
They spoke about it in 1954 and are still scratching their heads.
Just look at all the closures – the Catholic Club, the deep sea fishing club, Novotel Pacific Bay and numerous businesses.
We don’t even have an information centre. We have so much potential, so who is to blame?
Has anybody out there got the solution?
Buyers beware of cheap rust buckets AFTER retiring my 35-year-old trailer, I needed another one and so two years ago I purchased a trailer from a Coffs Harbour hardware retailer.
Sadly, after nine months of ownership, the floor began to rust. By 18 months it was two-thirds rusted.
I rang the people I believe had built it in Beerwah, Queensland, and they were non-committal.
I had it sprayed but that did not work.
Just before the two-year warranty expired, the whole back of the trailer collapsed in the middle of the road and I found myself dragging a twisted tailgate.
I called Queensland again and they fitted a new floor and tailgate.
I might add that there is no weld on this trailer, it has been pop-rivetted together.
I have never seen this done before. Upon further investigation I learned that the product has been sent from China as “flat-pack”.
It is imported to Australia to a company that uses pop-rivets to put it together.
The trailer now does not close on the tailgate so I can only use on catch and need to use wire to join the other side. Consequently it is difficult to open also.
Additionally, the axle is bent in the middle and would be considered not roadworthy.
