So that’s what all the fuss is about
I’VE noticed many complaints about a plan to build a roundabout near the Tasmania Golf Club. I’m not into golf, so I thought this’d be an issue I could easily ignore. But there has been so much fuss that I thought I should check.
Beep me! Both options put a roundabout in the middle of the road to Midway Point. I suppose that we should be grateful that whoever is suggesting this doesn’t want to put it in the middle of a runway, so the planes won’t fly so fast when taking off.
A much better design is obvious and likely to be cheaper.
If we keep the old road as a local access road, we can build the new road as a simple bypass with a simple bridge over Pittwater Rd and simple on and off ramps from each left lane to the local access road. Any roundabout needed to accommodate right turns can be on the local access road. No wonder so many golfers and lovers of the environment are making such a fuss.
