Step forward for North Coast Road

YORKE Peninsula Coun­cil will increase maintenance for the notorious North Coast Road, Point Turton, while refreshing the road design so it can apply for funding to seal the 11-kilometre section.

The road will be graded up to seven times a year, the added costs to be absorbed within council’s patrol grading budget.

Designs should cost $15,000 to $20,000, while the estimated cost of sealing is $6million to $7m.

    This decision should have been made years ago. This would be one of worst dirt roads I have ever driven on with corrugations that destroy suspensions and tyres along with choking dust in summer. It is an ankle breaking hazard to walk on and "must" be used as there is no separate 'Walk the Yorke" trail/path to walk on. Let's hope this leads to action and not further procrastination.
