There has been some action on two issues raised by residents. These are two older issues which at last have seen some action.
The Telstra pit problem at the corner of O’Reilly Drive and Cougal Crt has been going on for well over 12 months. The issue is being pursued by Paul Harrison who makes calls every few weeks to Telstra to have the problem addressed. SCRC handed the issue back to BeCA as Telstra did not return any of their enquiries. Recently Paul received the name of a Telstra person to contact over this problem. After explaining the issue Paul was told the problem would be addressed. A week or so later there was a knock on his door and a Telstra employee said the problem had now been fixed. However Telstra had repaired the pit in Paul’s front lawn, not the one BeCA has been seeking action on. When he was made aware of the pit BeCA wanted fixed the Telstra employee said he knew the pit but said that was much too big a job for him to do. It would require the footpath to be dug up and the pit raised. Paul again contacted Telstra and sorted the issue out. It is now back in the Telstra pipeline!
BeCA also sent a letter to Telstra several months ago over the lack of internet broadband access available to some residents here on the estate. We have not received any correspondence back from Telstra on this issue.
And BeCA has received a response to the issue of the dangerous foot crossing at the foot of the hill on Bellvista Blvd. Sunshine Coast Regional Council has been out and inspected the crossing. Measurements have been taken and the SCRC is considering the best way to address the problem. SCRC sees resiting this crossing as one way of solving this dangerous issue.
BeCA continues to await a Council response to two other issues it has raised, an emergency exit to the estate and the dangerous school bus stop at the intersection of Bellcarra Place and Bellvista Blvd.
