Mystery paint splatter runs along Bargara foreshore

A MYSTERY white line added to the Bargara Esplanade roadway has surprised even the Bundaberg Regional Councillors.

Roads and drainage spokesman Tony Ricciardi and Bargara divisional councillor Greg Barnes were both unaware the thin white splatter line even existed on the council-owned road.

Believed to have come about over the weekend, Cr Barnes said an issue like had never cropped up before. He said paint spills were usually contained to a small area and not stretched for such a distance along a roadway.

The stark white paint is a bright contrast against the black road and Cr Ricciardi said the council would consider several options to remove the splatter.

"They may be able to Gurney it off under high pressure or they may put a dark paint over it," he said.

Cr Ricciardi said if the culprit was found, the council might seek compensation for the damages.

"But I don't think there's a fine if it was an accident," he said.

"Depending on how severe the issue is, they may make some compensation - if they can find the person.

"But ninety-nine percent of the time, you can't."
