Hang on one red hot minute! The questions begs asking – why is the Butler Street bypass still on the table at all?
Blind Freddy himself could see what a remarkable difference the extra lane at the roundabouts heading into town has made. What was once an exasperating traffic snarl has become minimal at worst.
So, what’s the plan now, shred through wetlands and upset a myriad of residents and business owners just so the odd Suffolk Park resident can nip up to Sunrise IGA?
Not one visitor will use said bypass because of course everyone holidaying here wants to have a good old rubberneck through town! I feel common sense is taking a back seat to bureaucratic nonsense. Again. In Byron Shire. Well colour me surprised.
