Prior to Christmas 2010 the deluge began from the gods!
I am a long-term resident of Mt Warning Rd, with its 70,000-plus visitors a year to the landmark Mt Warning (Wollumbin) and am still waiting for the rolling waves, humps and holes to be fixed at the entrance to and causeways of Mt Warning Road.
Now don’t get me wrong: I love an exhilarating rollercoaster ride – but generally not in my car.
Considering the number of visitors and residents, a caravan park, two cafes and three other accommodation businesses (tourist dollars – jobs ye cry), one would think that sooner rather than almost one and a half years later would be a good time to fix the eyesore.
With the continued deluge last summer, and again recently, it just gets worse. For those who wish to come and enjoy the rollercoaster on the north coast, be my guest. But don’t leave it too long: the Tweed Shire Council just might come and fix the road one day soon. Well, we can all live in hope!
