A resident has placed another slow down sign on the problem road.
The current Council Plan identifies this as a wildlife crossing area recommended for speed reduction.
The day the Council removed other slow down signs put up by concerned locals they placed road counters between Bingil Bay and Narragon. I wonder how long it will be before the data collected is analysed and the speed limit reduced.
Other residents have said cars were 'fishtailing' on the gravel road at Garners Beach. A high number of birds cross all the narrow winding roads between Bingil Bay and Garners Beach.
I hope these bored people can survive not hurting themselves or the local wildlife before they grow up and become responsible. Would not be a good memory to have hit an animal while joyriding on the road.
The forest floor is tinder dry and every movement of wildlife can be heard. Even the crack of a tiny twig has the now not so small Blackie bolt upright alert and listening.
resident yellow spotted goanna and two lace goannas.
There is a little less haze around today from the fires in the tablelands. The dryness is a little nerve wracking with the high risk of fire excerbated by the ample fuel left behind by cyclone Yasi. I hope it rains soon.
