Im­prove the roads

Fraser Coast Chronicle - - YOUR SAY -

I HAVE re­quested on nu­mer­ous oc­ca­sions for the Road North from Noosa, Cooloola Way.

I have ex­pressed that this road would bring in mil­lions of dol­lars each year through employment, tourism and vis­i­tors. This road would ser­vice the Gympie Re­gion and Fraser Coast. It is the Divi­sion Of Wide Bay, a Na­tional Party Seat that is rep­re­sented by Llew O’Brien and for­merly War­ren Truss. We are the low­est so­cio-eco­nomic area in Aus­tralia. Un­til we are ser­viced by a road, I will make it clearly known of the dis­tress that th­ese com­mu­ni­ties are go­ing through. Af­ter com­plet­ing their ed­u­ca­tion our chil­dren have to leave the com­mu­nity to find employment, fol­lowed by their par­ents and grand­par­ents. The shop­keep­ers are strug­gling and employment is at a min­i­mum. Sir, the com­mu­nity is not beg­ging, but will be look­ing for an out­come, due to the fail­ure of our plea.
