Broken glass and broken promises
THE broken glass noise panels on the Tugun Bypass have not been replaced despite the Minister for Main Roads Craig Wallace’s claims they would be replaced in the last quarter of 2010.
Currumbin MP Jann Stuckey has again asked the Mr Wallace for costs and a schedule for the replacement of the broken glass. “I am seeking answers as to when the promised replacement of 70 broken glass panels will occur, exactly what material will be used and how much this will cost,” Ms Stuckey said.
“My first question to the minister back in June 2009 revealed broken panels would be replaced in late 2009/early 2010.
“Following further questioning, the minister admitted replacement would not begin until late 2010.
“Again, this deadline has not been met, this promise has been broken.”Ms Stuckey said nearby residents have had enough.
“Residents in nearby streets have contacted my office complaining of “significant noise from the bypass, particularly from trucks using their air brakes at night,” she said.
Mr Wallace was unable to comment.
