Letter: You say - Heads in the sand.

Byline: E Moffatt

I ATTENDED a council meeting some weeks ago to oppose the building of 1,360 apartments on the Garden Festival site at Riverside Drive.

My main objection to this proposal was based upon living there for 18 years and seeing the increase in traffic, which at times is horrendous.

I was given my obligatory two minutes on the platform to tell the councillors and planners the facts and figures on how this road will not cope with the increase in traffic from this development. The council had, in my mind, already reached their decision and proceeded to bury their heads in the sand.

It will only be a matter of time, if these apartments get built, before this decision comes back to haunt them and force their hand to overturn this decision of no dual carriageway.

These councillors are guardians of our city, so when will they start acting like it and listen to the people who live in the city and not developers who will scarper when they get their bag of gold?
