Unsafe trenches spook pedestrians
PEDESTRIANS and traders have been left dumbfounded by potentially hazardous trenches dug into pedestrian crossings in Prince Street, Grafton on Saturday.
The Daily Examiner was informed of the trenches, believed to have been dug by Clarence Valley Council staff on behalf of the RTA, by a Prince Street retailer who was perplexed that no signage had been erected and no attempt at bridging the gap had been made.
Meanwhile, The Examiner noticed the pedestrian crossing on Prince Street near the Bacon Street intersection has disappeared.
An RTA statement on Friday announced it was proposing 40kmh zones for parts of the CBD but no work schedule was mentioned.
