Blog comments Your Say

  • OMG still no bridge, I thought it will be due for maintenance soon... since how long the residents been yelling for one... Good for the private boat transport company "if I were 100% blind, still could smell the corruption.

  • Dear readers.Russell Island is defianetly growing.Why because the demand of affordable land is sadly becoming unavailable.I see both sides of this argument.I understand the need for Council to keep the Island as Simple Living,and if that is not your bag don't purchase land or live here.Iam sure that's good,but affordable land especially in Australia and on an Island,you have to consider young couples delema.Eventually the young will run Councils,as new members will be required.They will experience growth as inevitable.As there Children will seek further education.Not wanting to sustain there life style from Government Benefits.This will cost a lot,to send your child or children to the Mainland to further there Education.Young Children become young Adults very quickly,and they want so much more,as pressure mounts for them to have the best education.So I believe that no matter what is not available now will certainly be the agenda to either Live a young life without reality checks. ,or move with the times,and let the younger generation grow,stronger,through the right to have the best education,even though there parents had no other option to purchase where they could afford.We are here for such a short time.To see growth before your own eyes is growth within yourself.The bridge is a viable option for the new generations to come. Sorry if I have upset anyone,Thanks For Reading.

  • Russell Island is a community & part of the RCC & should be treated as such. If they need a better solution to transport needs then why can't we be treated the same as any other community in which pays rates.Do you really think residents would be screaming for a bridge if it wasn't a necessity ? The Islands have been discriminated against enough & it's time for change. A previous comment stated a bridge is against their belief in keeping a good environment, have you thought of the impact on the sea life due to ferries & barges continuously going backwards & forwards ??. The ferries & barges cannot keep up with demand, the Redlands foreshore is a carpark, the only solution in the end is a bridge, the Islands will grow whether you wan't it or not. Council are wasting money on bandage fixes & in the end a bridge will still be reuired

  • 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.

  • if property owners want a bridge, then they should pay for it. The big jump in property values will offset the cost.
