Whenever I go to Brisbane Airport I am charged by credit card for the privilege of using the Gateway Bridge infrastructure via a plastic thing which is adhered to my windscreen.
1.5 million visitors to Byron Bay could be charged, say, $5 per vehicle as it leaves the roundabout at the new Rec. grounds. At an average of 2.5 per car that is $3 million towards maintaining infrastructure.
Residents could have a different “chip” in their plastic thing which only charges them $2.
Am sure the friendly folk at GoVia, or whatever, would be more than happy to talk to our Mr Gainger.
Any revenue over the budget of $3 million would be well spent upgrading the rest of Binna Burra Road!
