Situation is slippery at bus stop
EVERY time it rains, the bus stop near Keith Lorberg’s Kepnock home becomes a mud bath.
“It makes it dangerous to people getting on and off the bus,” he said.
Mr Lorberg, of McVeigh Street, said his neighbours were predominantly older people, and some had trouble negotiating the muddy gutter.
“It would be very easy for someone to slip — and it’s no good at all if you’ve got a wheelchair,” he said.
He said the damage got worse with every trip the bus took, as it tore up more grass and mud at the bus stop, on the corner of McVeigh and Jocumsen streets.
Mr Lorberg said it would be safer if the stop was relocated to a point about 20m from its current spot.
“If they moved it just a little bit down the road, people would be getting off onto bitumen, so it would be safer for everyone,” Mr Lorberg said.
Bundaberg Regional Council Division 9 representative Judy Peters said the council was aware of the issue and was working with residents and the bus company.
“Council is aware of this bus stop and will be moving it within the next six months to a more appropriate position,” Cr Peters said.
