Colin Buchanan My wife's thoughts mirror my own. We moved to Bribie because it wasn't the Gold or Sunshine coast. The traffic problems since the Sandstone Point hotel opened were bad enough, an hour to get home from Morayfield on a Saturday frustrating at best. And with the multi story box on the first roundabout almost complete I cannot help but wonder what's it going to be like, when the extra folk that live in it try to get onto an already poorly thought out intersection. To 233 Welsby and another box being plonked there to add to traffic woes while it's being built and beyond. Every time I drove back home over the bridge I used to say a quiet thank you as I surveyed the island, now I have one eyesore before I've traveled 100 metres, and will soon have another before I even get off the bridge. And I can only imagine the back room deals that went on before the 5 story box got approval in Foley street. What's next a casino? And not happy with the regular fireworks displays stressing wildlife, our council seems to have forgotten to get developers to fence the border to the National park where it meets housing estates. Seems chasing the holy dollar is more important.
