Coalition makes pledge on Kirra
ANDREW Stoner, New South Wales Nationals leader, knows how good a wave Kirra was in its glory days after surfing it in the late 1970s.
That’s why on a visit to the Tweed on Tuesday he committed to working to find a better outcome for the Tweed River Entrance Sand Bypassing System should the Coalition be elected in NSW.
“There is obviously no subtlety in the delivery of sand from south of the border, and I think there can be. I think we could have the right sand in the right places if there was a little bit of talk between the two State governments,” Mr Stoner said yesterday.
“A Coalition Government of NSW would work with the Queensland Government to trial some adjustments to the flow of sand from south of the border.”
He said worthwhile suggestions included adding length to Kirra’s “big groyne”.
