Locals fuming over congestion

BANORA Point residents are furious at congestion caused by new traffic lights installed at the Darlington Dr underpass as part of the Banora Point Pacific Highway upgrade.

Banora Point and District Residents Association secretary Pat Tate said the association had scheduled a meeting with the Banora Point Upgrade Alliance for this afternoon.

"I personally have avoided the area all together but the people that did get caught up in that fiasco are furious," Ms Tate said.

"We've got a meeting with them this afternoon to let them know we're not happy."

While the bypass benefits motorists passing through Tweed Heads South and Banora Point, residents who need to manoeuvre through the constantly changing traffic conditions and congestion surrounding it are becoming more and more frustrated.

The new Darlington Dr underpass opened on Saturday, complete with traffic lights.

The old Darlington Dr underpass has closed permanently with demolition of the bridge to begin tomorrow.

"We knew this would happen from the beginning, but they said their modelling showed it would be ok," Ms Tate said.

The meeting was scheduled for 3pm today.

A community meeting open to the public will be held from 5.30pm - 7pm tonight at Club Banora on Leisure Dr, Banora Point.

All are welcome to attend and voice their concerns.
