We would also like to remind those people who have prepaid for the book that they should call at the Pioneer Museum during opening hours to collect their book. Bayley Street traffic concern
As a resident living in Bayly Street, Mulwala I’m appalled at the amount of trucks and cars speeding and using their mobile phones.
Bayly Street has become a motorist’s speedway. It’s only a matter of time until a serious accident occurs.
Once cars, trucks etc turn into Bayly Street it’s open slather and they do whatever they like.
Much more signage is needed and even a police car cruising up and down to stop this hoon behaviour.
