People Power sees guard rail obstruction removed

Following on from vocal outcry across social media regarding the guardrail installation on the corner of Old Grandfathers Pit Rd and George Bass Drive Council have removed the visual obstruction that prohibited drivers from seeing oncoming traffic. The recently opened Grandfathers Gully upgrade has been carefully followed by residents keen to see the bypass open following a delay that required a prolonged and cumbersome detour route. Once open locals were astonished to find that the guard rail at the intersection of Old Grandfathers Pit Rd and George Bass Drive prohibited a driver sitting in a standard vehicle from seeing approaching traffic. Using People Power and drawing Council's attention to the design fault the offending guardrail has now been removed.
