Traffic chaos! Who would have predicted it? Not Byron Shire Council.
Close one lane at Belongil Creek and sit back and watch what happens on your average Tuesday (21/3) morning.
Traffic backed up beyond the Cavanbah Sports Centre towards Ewingsdale. From Belongil Creek there was a single lane of cars trying to leave town blocked all the way back past the police station, down Jonson Street, back to Mitre 10. The whole town was gridlocked.
Is this the future while they try and build a roundabout at Belongil? Council needs to provide some alternative.
Consider how many hours of people’s time wasted let alone business suffering at both ends because people won’t go there.
An electrician coming into town for an appointment with me rang and said he was turning back. Cannot wait until Easter when the chaos normally begins.
