Your View: Port Victoria jetty

The B-grade sealing of the Old Wallaroo Road (R. Braley, YPCT 19-12-17) reminds me of the patch-up job done on the Port Victoria jetty.

t has been sketchily repaired when it needed restoration. A few weeks ago, in calm weather, I was sitting on my fishing trolley waiting for a bite (which never came) when a couple walked behind me.

Believe it or not, I could feel the jetty decking move. This surely does not inspire confidence. Come the next big blow, it will need more repairs.

Why wasn’t it done properly the first time? The same happened in the building of the boat ramp.

Somebody put a flat spot in halfway down the ramp and it had to be cut out and replaced at considerable cost and inconvenience.

Can’t the powers that be get it right the first time? It’s not rocket science.
