My hat’s off to the Byron Shire councillors for solving the traffic problem getting into Byron. Especially Rose Wanchap, whose idea it was (or so I’ve heard) to put in two lanes to the main roundabout.

The last two weeks I’ve been able to go into town from Ewingsdale with no trouble at all. Who would ever have thought that such a simple solution would work so well? I confess I thought it would help a little, but not nearly so much as it has.

Now going into Byron for a morning coffee is a pleasure again, at least until the new developments like West Byron and the huge retirement village around the new hospital restore the problem.

Charles MacFarland, Ewingsdale
