The return of site workers and the recent cooler easterly winds have spelt disaster for residents living beside the Bells Reach development.
The dust problem for some of these residents living along Bellvista Blvd is almost horrific. The lack of rainfall has meant the dust problem has worsened.
This drain (photo left) is being upgraded following the removal of the Bells Reach Land Sales Office. Trucks carting dirt to and from this work continually raises dust which billows over nearby houses.
When the wind is gusty, dust also billows over houses off the huge piles of dirt at the northern end of the development.
Vacuum cleaners are working at full pace and residents are forced to shut their doors and windows during much of the day depriving them of cooler breezes.
At 3pm when work ceases residents are only then able to open their houses. These residents are almost praying for hot north westerlies to again blow so they don’t receive the full blast of the ever continuous dust.
When asked a Bells Reach resident commented that the sooner work was all over the better as they have a continuous dust problem as well, meanwhile others are hoping for around 100mls of rain to dampen everything down.
The recent spate of repetitive helicopter ‘touch ‘n gos’ are from the Becker Helicopter School located at the Sunshine Coast Airport in Maroochydore. Local MP Mark McArdle has asked BeCA to monitor the situation and to keep him informed.
