Things continue to roll on around our area. Recent rains have created great growing conditions and with Council Staff enjoying their Christmas New Year vacation, it may require some patience before all is returned to as good a condition as possible. BeCA encourages residents with a particular concern to use the MyCouncil website to lodge those concerns.
It seemed to take forever but the bus stop (photo above) has been relocated from near Bellcarra Place to a spot just to the south of the Bellvista Blvd/Dumbarton Drive roundabout. As numerous signs tell us, this is a temporary move only. The plan is for the bus stop to return to a spot just to the south of Bellcarra Place. However Stockland would not mind if the current ‘temporary’ bus stop became a permanent fixture if appropriate arrangements can be met.
Stockland is steaming ahead with the duplication works for Bellvista Blvd between Caloundra Rd and the Bellvista Blvd/Dumbarton Drive roundabout. It seemed to be just a matter of days until the area for development was cleared and major siteworks got underway. Stockland is hoping to have the any works which will hold up traffic completed where possible prior to the start of the 2018 School Year at Unity College.
The school now accommodates around 1400 students with many of these being driven to school daily from out of this immediate area. This then creates nasty traffic conditions during school pick up and drop off periods. Stockland hope to keep any delays to a minimum.
With the new 2018 school year about to begin, work is continuing to have the new Baringa State Primary School fully ready for its first students. New furniture is in place and from what BeCA understands, all is ready for the first school day of 2018.
Regretfully some damage has occurred to the new toilet block recently opened at Quinn Park. Hopefully all repairs will have been carried out by the time you read this. BeCA encourages residents who witness any inappropriate behaviour to call Caloundra Police on (07) 5439 4444 or Police Link 131444 immediately.
