THE TOONS’ VIEWS

Dubbo Photo News - - News Extra -

Along with tourists, Dubbo ho­tels host a vast ar­ray of trav­ellers. The city has un­matched state-ofthe-art con­fer­ence fa­cil­i­ties, func­tion cen­tres and en­ter­tain­ment venues, which will con­tinue to at­tract clien­tele, be­cause that’s what they’re look­ing for, and we’ve got it.

Dubbo Base Hos­pi­tal has the only birthing cen­tre and on­col­ogy ser­vices for the greater part of western NSW. The hos­pi­tal’s cur­rent ex­pan­sion will soon cater for greater num­bers of western re­gion res­i­dents and their fam­i­lies. Mac­quarie Homes­tay alone is es­ti­mat­ing that it will ac­com­mo­date up to 1000 med­i­cal vis­i­tors each year.

Dubbo sale yards at­tract farm­ers, truckers and agents ev­ery week. A by­pass will help them to en­ter and leave the in­dus­trial ar­eas ef­fi­ciently with­out dis­turb­ing other parts of town. A high-level bridge at Troy will en­able heavy trans­port-re­liant en­ter­prises in North Dubbo to carry out their busi­ness ac­tiv­i­ties un­hin­dered dur­ing a flood.

Many cities and towns rely on the Newell High­way be­ing open for busi­ness dur­ing all-weather events. A by­pass and high-level bridge at Troy would re­duce de­liv­ery times and cut trans­port costs on an ev­ery day ba­sis, whilst keep­ing the econ­omy and Newell High­way mov­ing in a flood.

The Ed­i­tor,

In ref­er­ence to the ar­ti­cle “Land­lord pinged for park­ing out­side Church St prop­erty” [Dubbo Photo

Oc­to­ber 17], I be­lieve the fol­low­ing info I have in­cluded will shed some light on how the Mit­subishi ASX could be con­sid­ered not to be el­i­gi­ble to use a load­ing zone.

Quoting from NSW Leg­is­la­tion: “Stop­ping in a load­ing zone. “A driver must not stop in a load­ing zone un­less the driver is driv­ing:

(a) a public bus that is drop­ping off, or pick­ing up, pas­sen­gers, or

(b) a truck that is drop­ping off, or pick­ing up, goods, or

(c) any of the fol­low­ing ve­hi­cles: (i) a ve­hi­cle that a per­son is get­ting into or out of or get­ting on or off,

(ii) a sta­tion wagon or a mo­tor bike that has three wheels and is con­structed prin­ci­pally for the con­veyance of goods,

(iii) a mo­tor ve­hi­cle con­structed prin­ci­pally for the con­veyance of goods ( other than a ve­hi­cle re­ferred to in sub­para­graph (ii)).” Scott, Dubbo

The Ed­i­tor,

Praise where praise is due.

I was trav­el­ling through Dubbo, stay­ing for two days, and picked up a copy of your Dubbo Photo News pa­per.

I was im­pressed with the con­tent and pho­tos of the lo­cals in ac­tion, so many smil­ing faces.

I am fully aware of the drought sit­u­a­tion in the re­gion and was so im­pressed with the lo­cal Dubbo Coun­cil tak­ing ac­tion in pro­mot­ing the new wa­ter sav­ing theme. (I wish it didn’t have to be.) The ac­tion be­ing taken should be adopted na­tion­ally as wa­ter is such a valu­able re­source.

Lastly, I would like to ac­knowl­edge the well writ­ten let­ter from Ken Wind­sor of Dubbo [“A tonguein-cheek look at world protests”, Let­ters & Feed­back, Oc­to­ber 17]. I do hope that this let­ter is pub­lished in other news­pa­pers.
