Byron Shire Council staff should expect a fiery meeting at Wilsons Creek Public School tonight.
The council called the meeting a week ago to update residents on the landslip on the road, which is the only route into and out of the valley.
The road has now deteriorated to the point where vehicles over three tonnes cannot cross the landslip area. This includes school buses and water tankers.
The local school bus operator has been prevented from walking school children across the landslip area by the department of transport. Many of the area’s 400 residents now have to ferry their children to school each day in their own cars, ironically increasing the amount of traffic crossing the slip zone.
While the recent rains have replenished tanks, some residents have been reliant on the small amounts of water they can carry across the zone in their cars.
Tonight’s meeting will commence at 6pm.
