Some years ago I wrote to Port Macquarie-Hastings Council to ask for a crossing on Bold Street near Coles as the traffic was a worry.
Council told me then that a crossing could not be implemented, as it was too close to an intersection.
Much later we finally got the refuge on the corner. As I had to cross the road to shop I would walk up to where the Commonwealth Bank was located to cross safety as there was a crossing there.
Imagine my surprise when I read the Courier to learn that the pedestrian crossing will be implemented near the entrance to Coles.
I am pleased this is to be done (at a huge cost) as I still have to cross a busy road.
I would also like to inform residents that the chemist delivers everyday. I did not know this until I needed help.
