Byron’s new road: the good and not so

After more than 30 years of talk, debate, disagreements, tears and political gridlock, Byron Bay has a new road to divert traffic from the CBD to the southern end of town.

Police are investigating the brakes of a runaway Isuzu ute that crashed into an Oliver Avenue, Goonellabah, unit around 5.15 yesterday afternoon, demolishing part of the back wall and a retaining wall at the side of the house.

The property, part of a unit complex, was unoccupied at the time of the accident. A neighbour told local media it had recently been sold and the new owners had yet to move in.

The ute first ploughed into an electricity box before running down the side of the house and smashing into the back corner of the home, causing brickwork to become dislodged and fall out.

Both the female driver and male passenger were unharmed and were treated by paramedics at the scene.
