Regarding the new roundabout at the Ozigo corner of Bayshore Drive and Ewingsdale Road, adjacent to the proposed West Byron development site.
The months of work and hundreds of thousands of dollars spent to raise an acre of land a mere metre higher, carting hundreds of truckloads, dumping, rolling and compressing thousands of cubic metres of soil – reveals what a farce the proposed West Byron development is!
The ocean is set to rise a minimum of 40 centimetres by the end of this century. What is now melaleuca swamp will become mangrove wetlands.
There are children already born who will witness West Byron properties inundated by seawater. This proposed development is the worst kind of opportunism and should never go ahead.
