LAND­SCAPE BY­PASS

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - YOUR SAY -

CON­CERN­ING the pro­posed cut­ting that is part of the by­pass.

At the end of the day, we may well end up with it but there is noth­ing stop­ping it to be­come an at­trac­tive icon of Coffs Har­bour.

In­stead of a slop­ing bat­ter, the sides of the cut­ting can be ter­raced this would cre­ate flat ar­eas for veg­e­ta­tion.

With in­put from land­scape gar­den­ers both sides of the cut­ting could be made quite at­trac­tive.

Per­haps with trees, like in Sawtell, that even­tu­ally over­hang the high­way that would be planted on an up­per ter­race, not at road level.

Plant­ing on the up­per most ter­race could take place in the early stage of the cut­ting, by the time the by­pass is opened it would be well es­tab­lished. Ian Hamey
