Lack of road lines cause traf­fic havoc

Townsville Bulletin - - Voice Of The North -

I TOO would like to reg­is­ter my con­cerns about the ab­sence of line marki n g a t t h e n e w traf­fic sig­nals at the en­try to the Airforce Base on Ing­ham Road ( TB 26/ 2/ 11). Trav­el­ling this route reg­u­larly I have also wit­nessed mo­torists try­ing to change lanes sud­denly when they find them­selves fac­ing on­com­ing traf­fic, all be­cause there are no lane m a r k i n g s . Un­for­tu­nately, as usual, our coun­cil’s re­sponse to the ob­vi­ous safety is­sue is to wheel out Mr Ma­goo to do an in­spec­tion and spout the usual plat­i­tudes, telling us to slow down, take ex­tra care, be pa­tient etc. We do not all drive around with our eyes shut Cr Veitch. This in­ter­sec­tion is and has been a haz­ard ever since y o u r c o u n c i l s t a r t e d work on it. It is a pity you and the rest of the TCC c a n ’ t r e s p o n d i n a r e a s o n a b l e m a n n e r rather than treat­ing the per­son like an id­iot. TERRY URQUHART,
