Hardly very wel­com­ing

Tweed Daily News - - OPINION NEWS -

WE ARE res­i­dents in Tweed Heads where large build­ings are go­ing up around the town, bring­ing with them hun­dreds of new res­i­dents and ratepay­ers.

I would like to ask the Tweed Shire Coun­cil why the main bus stop that wel­comes vis­i­tors to NSW from the north is so badly ne­glected and down­trod­den and has been for many years?

Same ques­tion ap­plies to the north­bound stop across the road where the in­ter­change be­tween Queens­land and NSW takes place.

This is an em­bar­rass­ment to the town.

Would the coun­cil­lors please come up to the bus stop where our tourists get their first glimpse of this beau­ti­ful re­gion. It’s a hor­ror!

While they’re here, I would urge them to take a look around at the board­walk at Jack Evans Boat Har­bour where the wooden boards are beg­ging for main­te­nance and are fast be­com­ing a risk for pub­lic li­a­bil­ity claims.

Fi­nally, the plight of the home­less in the town is ev­i­denced ev­ery­where. Your sym­pa­thy is ap­pre­ci­ated but these peo­ple need con­crete so­lu­tions. — Gabi Smal­ley, Tweed Heads
