Letter to the Editor - Wednesday, July 10: Tunnel idea
IT IS interesting to see all the comments, both for and against the bypass of Coffs Harbour CBD. However, I would like to remind readers that the undertaking given by the previous Government did not discuss or suggest a bypass.
That came from people with grandiose ideas.
The promise was dual carriageway from Sydney to the Queensland border and, of course, as all would be aware, Coffs Harbour already has dual carriageway right through the town.
An option for consideration for some years in the future could be a tunnel for through traffic starting at the Big Banana and coming out just past Combine St.
I have discussed this with a few people who have said water would be a problem.
My reply would be "if they can build a tunnel under Sydney harbour this would be a walk in the park." I doubt that it will be in my time. I will be long gone or very lonely by then.
