Kennedy Drive saga to be the subject of a special report
KENNEDY Drive was hot on the agenda at this week's Tweed Shire Council meeting.
As a major arterial road through Tweed Heads, it has been something of a headache for motorists and residents alike, with major upgrades causing chaos for traffic over the past four years.
Cr Michael Armstrong proposed a report be put together to explain the process to residents in regard to repairs and the upgrade.
"It's not as good repair as we could expect," he told his fellow councillors last night.
Cr Warren Polglase said a report was a "waste of money."
"The information is already out there," he said.
Cr Katie Milne said the Kennedy Drive work was a "big issue."
"It's continually in the newspapers," she said.
"I don't think it would take a lot to put a report together.
"It would be a good thing to allow people to get a better understanding of what is being done at Kennedy Drive."
Cr Armstrong won the day, with councillors voting 4-3 to prepare a report that would outline maintenance, repairs and a construction history for the last four years.
The suggested report will also outline potential funding for the repair and reconstruction and the current historical financial capacity for ongoing repair, resurface or reconstruction.
