After speaking to several residents of Airlie Crescent, I attended the Council Meeting and asked questions.
Q1. Why is it necessary for Airlie Crescent to be closed and why is it not possible to make it a one-way street?
Brunker's answer was that Main Roads would not allow it.
Q2. Would the Ratepayers be up for the extra cost of the proposed turnaround on Airlie Crescent to allow for buses?
I got two answers. 1. That it would be included in the $17 million Main Street upgrade. I then asked what would be left out, to make up for this extra cost. Brunker said nothing would be left out; Main Roads would pay the extra.
Over the past four years, I have asked many questions at meetings and I get the same conflicting answers, which seem to be made up on the run.
