The Gold Coast Bulletin - - OPINION -

any won­der the M1 is a traf­fic night­mare when hous­ing devel­op­ments are be­ing built in sev­eral ar­eas ser­viced by this high­way?

For ex­am­ple, just to men­tion two, Coomera and Pim­pama are hav­ing town cen­tres be­ing built and are al­ready sur­rounded by mas­sive hous­ing es­tates.

As thou­sands more peo­ple move in to the re­gion, no gov­ern­ment efforts are be­ing made to up­grade the in­fra­struc­ture ac­cord­ingly. The prob­lem can only get worse be­fore even a hint of an M1 up­grade or al­ter­na­tive is heard. KEN JOHN­STON
