Stories about "Byron Bay traffic":

Suffering the (permanent) Byron traffic chaos

G Graham, Byron Bay. 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 morning.

Time for car-free zones in Byron

Mell Coppin, Byron Bay. Is it impossible to consider a Byron Bay with car-free zones? Couldn’t this amazing place filled with forward thinking people explore the possibility of a place with an alternative transport system?

Byron traffic management needs online info

Garth Luke, Mullumbimby. Given that pressures on the road from the highway into Byron are likely to only get worse, why don’t we try to use this road better?

Doubling lanes into Byron will add to congestion

Duncan Dey, Byron shire councillor. Byron Shire Council’s public transport system is failing. Proposals to double the car lanes into Byron may appear to help but experience with all road expansion programs shows that, once the new capacity is ‘discovered’, it moves the congestion to where the upgrade finishes and compounds it as well.

Is there a sustainable future for Byron Bay?

Ian Oelrichs OAM, Fellow, Australian Institute of Landscape Architects, Coopers Shoot. We must not allow intemperate decisions by a few people to put Byron Bay’s sustainable future at risk. The over $200,000 that Council voted last week to spend on trying to increase traffic flow into Byron’s CBD is premature.
