Justification for underpass has been made
In the Forum of the February 6 edition, Mr Bruce Hyland states we can do without the Bulls Hill Underpass "for years to come".
He appears to favour the economic rationalists who argue that the new pedestrian underpass at Rawson Rd absolves the Government (and Council) of any further life-saving measures.
If we follow this amoral line of thinking, the underpass at Bulls Hill can only be built when the community can demonstrate increased benefit or reduced cost to make the cost-benefit equation balance.
But how should we demonstrate increased benefit?
Should we wait for more deaths at the crossing or more horrendous delays to traffic because a truck has blocked the single lane underpass from Woy Woy Rd?
Do we wait until the Peninsula becomes a no-go zone for tourists because of its appalling access?
Is it even realistic to expect significantly reduced cost in the future?
The justification for an underpass at Bulls Hill has been made for many years.
It is time the community united to support it.
