So our philanthropic benefactors the Elements Resort are about to gift the shire a three-kilometre rail service enabling their guests to travel into town avoiding the traffic jam.
How’s the irony in that those who derived their wealth from coal mining in NSW are being permitted to impose an antiquated and polluting diesel loco on the residents.
Driving into Byron suffering the crawl to turn left at Bayshore (ozigo), secure a park and meet the proposed hourly train service only to be dropped off at Simmo’s Caltex servo and to repeat the procedure on the way home is ludicrous!
Why not create a walkway/cycleway with solar powered lighting for all to use 24/7, being greener and cheaper and supply the Element’s guests with a fleet of new cycles or heaven forbid, electric bikes.
Alas, another nail in the coffin of the goose that laid the golden egg.
