The Palmwoods and Montville communities and hundreds of tourists have every right to be angry and frustrated at the Department of Transport and Main Roads’ ongoing delays with fixing Palmwoods-Montville Road.
Member for Glass House, Andrew Powell MP has finally received an update that indicates weather permitting, works will start to fix the road immediately.
“I know we should be happy because we have some indication of a start time but the community has waited so long for this road to be fixed and ultimately reopen to traffic that I can’t help but feel a little underwhelmed.
“I hope for the community’s sake that the Department of Main Roads come through on their promise and construction really does start soon.
“It has been a long and incredibly frustrating wait for this community and I would like to express my own thanks and appreciation for their patience.
“I am told the project is going to take at least 12 months to complete given the complexity of the works involved so don’t pop the champagne corks just yet.
“If anyone who lives in this area has any issues as the works progress please give my office a call and we will do what we can to help you,” Mr Powell concluded.
