A major flaw in the recent road markings along Tincogan Street, Mullumbimby, is that the gargantuan pedestrian crossing which has gobbled up about twenty car-parking spaces is in the wrong place.

Even the most casual observation of pedestrian traffic reveals that most pedestrians cross Tincogan Street at the Stuart Street intersection. Witness the many people walking along Stuart Street as opposed to the very few walking along Dalley Street.

As loss of these car spaces is negatively impacting Mullumbimby Automotive and the fuel servo, it is clear that the pedestrian crossing should be moved to the Stuart Street intersection. Hoping the council plenipotentiaries can see the sense of this proposal and move on it forthwith.
