Bridge de­mo­li­tion no fix

Seymour Telegraph - - NEWS -

It ap­pears that Mick Crozier is to­tally against Steph Ryan’s pledge of $800 000 to fix the ford on De­latite Rd (‘Creek cross­ing prom­ise’, The Tele­graph, Novem­ber 21).

I’ve lived on De­latite Rd all of my life, and I’ve seen nu­mer­ous cars pulled out of White­heads Creek.

My par­ents’ house has flooded, my sis­ter’s house has flooded, and a brother’s place was ac­tu­ally washed away in flood wa­ters.

As for the night that an un­for­tu­nate lo­cal lost his life, his ve­hi­cle was swept in to the wa­ter.

Twenty years ago or more, Po­lice of­fi­cer Tony Blake re­ceived a brav­ery medal when he en­tered the wa­ter to help get a young lady out of the creek af­ter the car she was trav­el­ling in was swept away.

Hear­ing peo­ple scream­ing for help in the dark of night is not a pleas­ant thing.

I agree, some­thing should be done with the Old Goul­burn River cross­ing bridge, but we’ve been wait­ing a long time for ac­tion to be taken at the ford on De­latite Rd.

I thought the whis­pers about town at the time that the bridge started to be de­mol­ished were that it would be fixed. Who started pulling it down?
