Member for Currumbin Jann Stuckey has again today come out in support of Currumbin Waters’ residents affected by ongoing disruptions to their lifestyle, as a result of the Tugun desalination plant.

“Recent road repairs have caused further angst for residents along Ware Drive who had enough”

“They have been more than patient during the construction phase of the desal plant and all spent months with huge trenches in front of family homes.

“Now we have them once again being inconvenienced by more road works to their street commissioned once again by the desalination plant.

“Residents have brought to the attention of Watersecure that they believed there were vibrations coming from the large pipes laid just outside their properties.

“In response to the claims Watersecure monitored and found nothing but still decided to resurface the street.

“Why? If they found nothing wrong what is the point of resurfacing the road and putting residents through more pain and at what cost?

“Is this what the close to $100 million to finish the desal plant is in this years budget is for?

“Once again the government can not tell us what the resurfacing is costing, the same answer I got when I asked how much it cost to replace glass sound barriers on the Tugun bypass.

“The Governments smoke and mirrors answers continue and people are just fed up, we need to know the truth about the ongoing problems with the desal plant.

“It never cease’s to amaze me at this Bligh Labor Governments inability to manage projects of this size and it is no wonder that the state is in the debt with reckless spending of Queenslanders money”
