Suffolk Park Pump Track

We the ‘Engaged Neighbours’, on behalf of the Suffolk Park pump track’s affected neighbours and 300–400 petitioners and letter writers, request Council NOT to continue to bulldoze the large fenced in section of Linda Vidler Parkland adjacent to Baz and Shaz’s shop, close to the houses on three sides.

It strikes me as odd that when it comes to maintaining the highways and surrounds that we can manage to supply three trucks with giant flat-screen TVs stuck to the back of them warning us of what’s ahead, two massive lawn mowers to cut the grass, the fuel and the people to drive and look after these machines but we cannot get it together to have a couple of guys with sticks and a bucket to pick up the rubbish by the side of the highway before it gets shredded and sprayed all over the place.

Support The Echo

Keeping the community together and the community voice loud and clear is what The Echo is about. More than ever we need your help to keep this voice alive and thriving in the community.

Like all businesses we are struggling to keep food on the table of all our local and hard working journalists, artists, sales, delivery and drudges who keep the news coming out to you both in the newspaper and online. If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.

  1. I think it is even more bizarre that we can afford to tunnel through an entire mountain, build new bridges, duel carriageways while the roads leading off the highway are no better than bullock tracks pitted with potholes, broken verges, overhanging trees, and narrow winding sections that have claimed more lives than need be. Even more bizzare is a council which has recently wasted tens of thousands off dollars building some flower boxes in the middle of Byron township while the hinterland roads look like something out of a third world country. Oh that’s right, our dumbed down politicians want us to go to third world levels as part of their Australia in Asia notions of national identity. No doubt they will soon be encouraging us all to become Muslims too. Yep our political “servant’s” priorities become more and more bizarre as time passes. Power corrupts, except in Australia where power makes people into politically correct imbeciles.
