Safer Queen Street crossing discussed


CR JONES said the council’s Disability Advisory Committee had recently discussed its draft terms of reference, the changes to the Warragul Leisure Centre and the accessibility of the Warragul CBD from the station precinct.

A safer Queen Street crossing would be key to improving accessibility, the councillor said.

He said an Aberfeldy Progress Association meeting attended by about 30 people on the long weekend heard praise for work the shire had done to improve roads in the region.

    My wife and I moved to Warragul from Pakenham in august 2014, and I have never seen any mention of the state of the of the streets in Warragul township since we have moved here, I have never seen any repairs to the streets in the township itself, the underpass seams to have dominated the extent of road works, the plants in and around the town are beautiful but I am afraid the state of the streets let’s the town down.
    It seams to me Baw-Baw councillors are a bit like Cardinia councillors they never drive around there towns in the shire, if they do they must drive with there eye’s shut.
    I am sure the shop keepers wood like to see some of there rate money spent on the streets of there own town to encourage more shoppers to support them if the streets were in better a state.
    In Landsborough Street I see they done a bit of spray seal from the hospital towards King Street, but at the end of that seal on the left hand there is a wash out of app. 2 to 4 cm that has been like it since we moved here and nothing has been done about it and it is right on the edge of the bitumen, if someone hits that there could a nasty accident.
