Roads not keeping pace with population increase

It seems, everywhere you drive on the Peninsula, the roads are disintegrating in front of our very eyes with the token maintenance being done by our hardworking road crews being undone by the very next shower of rain.

One wonders if our Council has a long term plan to repair our roads to an acceptable standard.

This is not an easy task because our roads have been neglected for too long.

Adding to the problem is the haphazard approval of every Development Application of three-storey units, many not in line with the standard of building allowed, thus pouring more and more people living on the Peninsula.

How can any road maintenance program possibly catch up with such a dramatic population increase?

Council seem hellbent on cramming as many people as possible into our local area.

They do not care what the opinion of the local rate payer is.

The developer wins every time.

The Farnell Rd development is a glaring example.

All three ward Councillors voted in favour.

Let's remember this at the next election.

Think about the vote.

It affects us all.

This brings me back to our roads: Does Council care about the state of our roads?

Where is the plan?

Not a token project to put in a glossy brochure in our rate notices, but a meaningful plan embracing the problem that is getting out of hand.

I fear there is no plan, no desire to improve anything on the Peninsula.

We are only a rates cash cow.

Roads are a fundamental task of Council.

Please do your job on the Peninsula.
