Calls for Island bridge
4BC Drive: Russell Island Bridge lobbyist Joyce Web continues her support for a much needed bridge for residents in need of easy access to the mainland. State Member, Peter Dowling says a bridge is not on their agenda, however the Council has other ideas.
I feel the non resident rate payers are already paying for the bridge when my rates are 50% more with no services than my resident property on the Redland mainland.
We have never had true Island representation in local or state governments and this latest bunch are all about feathering their own nests than representing the electorate.
If the islands weren't owned by ordinary people the governments would turn the place over to developers like the Toondah Harbour fiasco.Peter Monday 10 March, 2014 - 7:47 AM
if property owners want a bridge, then they should pay for it. The big jump in property values will offset the cost.James W Monday 3 March, 2014 - 8:22 AM
If you do not like the transport arrangements of Russell Island you should move. Why should the mainland pay the millions and destroy the beauty of the area with a bridge, to appease a few whiners who moved out there.mick Friday 28 February, 2014 - 1:04 PM
I feel a trafic bridge to the island would have a negative effect ,not to mention the ferry /barge operators loss of key users.
We have however found a low impact foot/bike suspension link would have a massive beneficial for all involved.I am a duel rate payer and a full on environmentalist .At some time in the very near future we are going to build a ultra low impact suspension crossing .No dredging ,no need for a causeway,fully made from either recyclable materials or /and recycled produce .We are close to completing the FEED (front end engineering &development) and look forward to general community support.The cost may have to be shared ,however so to will be the benefits ,which by far out weigh the need to protect certain vested interested groups whom are (and always will be agains long tern ecological sense ).Tim Monday 24 February, 2014 - 1:58 AM
Wonderful blog! I found it while browsing on Yahoo News.
Do you have any suggestions on how to get listed in Yahoo News?
I've been trying for a while but I never seem to get there!
Many thanksclash of clans triche gemmes Monday 24 February, 2014 - 12:11 AM
I would love a bridge. It is the only answer to allowing the thousands of ratepayers access to the island. I have owned a block of vacant land on Russell Island for 10 years. The council in that time has increased my rates by 285%. Despite the fact that when I bought, I was told that increases would be in line with the annual CPI. Has the cost of living really tripled in 10 years? What a load of b!!!!! Thousands of vacant land owners pay huge rates for no good reason. There have been virtually no improvements in the last 10 years. If the 2/3 of property owners that haven't got a home there, were to suddenly move to the island there would be absolutely no infrastructure in place to cope with extra residents. There would be nowhere on the mainland to park a car within a half hour of the ferry. The council takes full rates of at least $2,100 pa off each land owner, regardless of how little our land is now worth. What a huge cash cow we are for the council. Around 70% of the rate payers don't have a residence on the island, they don't have to provide any services to these people. In addition, the vacant land owners are now being charged a transport levy. I feel the council is a corrupt bunch of thieves. What other area of Brisbane gets 70% of its rates from ratepayers who use no services. Then they charge considerably more than almost any other council.john Monday 23 December, 2013 - 3:48 PM
