Over the traffic – I want the bypass

I first met Phil on a rain-soaked day outside my house in Brunswick Terrace, Mullum. It was an accidental encounter, but we soon got stuck into a conversation about the parlous state of Australian universities.

Jeremiah O’Toole, Mullumbimby

As a Byron Shire resident for 15 years I’m in favour of the bypass proceeding ASAP. It will save traffic congestion in relation to getting in and out of the town centre.

Not only will it allow traffic that doesn’t need to access the town centre to bypass it but those wishing to go to the new Woolworths shopping complex and cinemas could also use the bypass, taking pressure off the existing entry into Byron.

Traffic coming to Byron is going to continue to increase so a real measure to take some pressure off the existing entry to town would be appreciated.

The amount of time wasted and vehicle fumes put out owing to the current inadequate road system is a joke. I look forward to the bypass completion and some reduced traffic times.
