  1. Geez that would piss me off! Traffic disturbing loads are usually carried during the quiet night hours are they not?

  2. I delivered my partner up to the airport from Clunes this morning – fortunately the wide load was going south and I was only held up for half an hour or more on the way back. We would have had no chance of catching the plane if it was the other way – No warning in the papers or on the radio – not good. There should have been ample warning days ahead so people could allow for it – not a notice on the RMS road site that day – Do you check the site everytime you go on the road? Hardly. Bureaucrats seem to think that the official Government notice is all that is required.No wonder the community doesn’t know what is happening.
