I have witnessed first-hand the traffic danger posed to children, parents and staff directly outside both the Wilsons Creek Public School and the adjacent preschool.

There have been dozens of near misses with drivers speeding through the 40km/h zone and cars overtaking stationary buses when children are crossing the road to alight or board the school bus. With inadequate provisions for safe operation of the bus service and parent parking in this zone, and the complete absence of a pedestrian crossing, there is a very real and immediate risk of injury or fatality.

Until Byron Shire Council and the RMS address this with the addition of a bus turnaround lane, I implore ALL residents of the valley to exercise utmost caution, particularly during the school zone hours. PLEASE!

  1. I fear that this place has been left in the past. Not saying that is a bad way to be, although that means that we do not receive the so called luxury’s that non rural people get. I have never seen a police speed camera in that school zone. All the time not 1. Look after all not just ones seen.

Nuclear Submarines – just a foot in the door

In the next few months we will hear a lot about how superior nuclear-powered submarines are. Vice Admiral Mike Noonan is even claiming superior stealth characteristics – which is simply not true. Yes, they tend to be faster. This is great if you want to go thousands of kilometres in a matter of days. But they are also much more expensive.
