SEAVIEW/BARGARA ROAD PARK CLOSED TO VEHICULAR TRAFFIC

This morning Council staff installed a number of bollards and a lockable barrier to prevent vehicles from entering the public park at the intersection of Bargara Road & Seaview Road.

Vehicle barriers have now been installed to prevent heavy vehicles from using the park as a defacto transport depot

Whilst vehicles are not supposed to enter Council parkland without permission (for a number of reasons, including liability issues) there have often been people pull up for a rest or a cuppa under one of the shady trees which nobody seemed to object to. Indeed, Council itself occassionally gains assess to the area to store material for nearby works however this is an authorised use subject to strict guidelines.

Unfortunately though, there are always those who stuff it up for everyone else and on Sunday I posted an article here following complaints that I had received about semi-trailers using the park as a defacto transport depot.

To make matters worse, yesterday morning I saw people carrying out mechanical work on the engine of one of the prime-movers which included the use of a 60 litre drum of oil.

It’s also apparent that the surface of the park has been significantly damaged by heavy vehicle movements and I can’t see why our ratepayers should have to foot the bill for the repairs.

As you’ll see from the photo above, whilst the park is now closed to vehicular access, the Council crew has provided ample parking space at the entrance off Seaview Road and in the immediate vicinity of the most popular shady tree area so that it can still be enjoyed.

Like any other park, if anyone has a need to gain vehicular access they should call the Councill switchboard on 1300 883 699 or give me a call on 0488 539 123 and I’ll submit the request on their behalf.
