Roads should be primary concern

TWO Junction View residents have expressed outrage that they are still unable to return home on a regular basis due to the condition of the roads surrounding their homes.

Robyn Diete and Noulin Miners have been periodically stranded away from their homes and their husbands for close to three months.

Mrs Miners said the damage to roads in Junction View and surrounding areas has meant she has only been able to return home twice in the past two months.

“Where the roads were there is now a creek and the first time we went home on the weekend it took us 50 minutes to go 12km,” she said.

“I have two daughters, one in Year 10 and the other in Year 7 and because of that we are staying in town, so the girls can go to school.

“All the generosity of people who want to donate to us is amazing, but what we really need is a road.

“All we want to do is go home.”

Mrs Miners said road repairs need to be completed sooner rather than later.
