Bridge on the river bremer
IT'S an epic tale to rival War and Peace - the tedious pace of progress on the promised Bremer River footbridge.
How much easier it would have been for pedestrians heading for the Riverlink shopping centre from Ipswich's CBD if this structure had been finished when it was required to be, more than two years ago.
They wouldn't have to dice with death crossing the road to get onto the David Trumpy Bridge.
A new permanent fence on that bridge, paid for by the state government, goes some way towards improving safety.
Let's hope the Bremer River footbridge is opened by Christmas, before someone gets seriously hurt.
Another project awash with problems and late in getting off the ground is the new primary school at Yamanto.
Bulldozers moved on the Deebing Creek Road site last week and promptly felled all the trees, as they invariably do. Nearby residents were unimpressed with their new view.
ON THE COVER: The Super Hornets are landing! Well, one is at least off the Boeing production line in the US and in test mode before coming out to RAAF Base Amberley next year.
