Letter to the Editor - Monday May 5: There are solutions
I WAS very suprised about the comment made by RMS that we do not have enough fatalities at Tyndale to warrant a speed change.
Why don't we have proper signs about turning off to the roadhouse when we are traveling south.
The speed limit is 100kmh and there is no indication about turning off left to the roadhouse for motorists.
I also agree with John Cranston about the sharpness of the turn left to our bakery, and the motel, even though they have a passing lane there to turn.
There should be cables instead of the guard rail. They put these in at Ulmarra, and the day they finished the work, a car ran into them, and they worked.
The solution is to lower the speed limit, fix our turn and put a lane to turn left to the roadhouse.
Or start the new highway sooner.
If this is not possible, the RMS should spend time with the SES, and others, to see the sort of things they have to live with for the rest of their lives.
Maybe then they will change their mind.
