Stories about "Grab the Rail":
Ray Boots, Byron Bay. As a resident of Byron Bay for the last 27 years, and a surfer here since 1966 I am deeply concerned at the position Byron Council has taken since been elected last. We seem to have a council that doesn’t consider the local community’s views on anything.
Residents of Byron Bay's Butler Street say the council's plans to construct extend their street into bushland will destroy local habitat. But the council says the group's alternative plan appears to stray into a nearby nature reserve.
Despite $50m being splashed at rail trails for the region, the pressure is still being applied by a group of residents advocating for what they claim is a more equitable bypass and transport solution for Byron Bay.
Jeff Harrison, Byron Bay, Grab the Rail looks the most effective bypass proposal so far. It’s best at bypassing the town centre and has extra advantages, including less traffic on Shirley Street and a bus station location.
Paul Jones, president, Butler Street Community Network. Remarks by Byron Shire Cr Sol Ibrahim as reported in last week declaring the Grab the Rail bypass proposal was 'too late' to be considered in Council’s proceedings towards a bypass EIS is typical of Council’s response to this proposal for over six years, it is simply not factual.
