Ferry for­ward think­ing

Mercury (Hobart) - - OPINION - Deb Hunt Moonah Stephen Jef­fery Sandy Bay Daniel Hack­ett Launce­s­ton

RE­GARD­ING the Bruny Is­land ferry, for good­ness sake peo­ple, get your act to­gether and quickly. Con­sider the tourism fac­tor (it isn’t go­ing away), the Dark Mofo in­flux, pre­dict that the traf­fic just might in­crease dur­ing busy times. Plan for ex­tra fer­ries and in­cor­po­rate some vi­sion and for­ward think­ing. Hello? How hard is it?

Bruny hints

TO those peo­ple who still ac­tu­ally live on Bruny Is­land: can’t you take the hints (“Ferry queues blasted”, Mer­cury, June 11)?

Halls Is­land pods

I’M more than happy to un­dergo a rig­or­ous as­sess­ment process for our Halls Is­land project, in­clud­ing the up­com­ing RMPAT ap­peal. What is com­pletely un­ac­cept­able is the con­tin­u­ous mis­rep­re­sen­ta­tion of the project in the Mer­cury, de­scrib­ing the pro­posal as a lodge or re­sort. Four pods barely big­ger than a stan­dard bed­room is hardly a lodge, and any such de­scrip­tion is sim­ply mis­lead­ing and in­flam­ma­tory.
