Suggestion of Hospital at airport

The Beagle Editor, Flying frequently over Batemans Bay intravilan it is too obvious how and how much of the Eurobodalla Shire ratepayers money are spent.

While there is no criticism of development as such, other Eurobodalla Shire residential urbanites aspirations are overlooked and discriminated against.

Saga of New Moruya Hospital rests still in political limbo, while the current hospital emergency department has now commenced costly extension and refurbishment, that is required to over-bridge the construction time of new hospital when ever, where ever it is build.

In my earlier debate contribution I have suggested Crown Land next to airport and racing track. No squabble who will pay to whom and how much and when. On June 14th 2021 I wrote: The Proposed Moruya By Pass Corridor Development Process is the result of extensive field investigations undertaken by a group of professionals for a period well over 6 months. As a resident of Meringo and Moruya since 2000 I see this Proposed By Pass benefiting mostly younger generations, odds are not in my favour to see it when it starts or finishes. History of Moruya dates to 1851, with records of 2 bridges destroyed in floods, current bridge is now 55 years old. The rest of Australia register Moruya as blimp on the road map, blimp with increasing tendency to create bottle necks, rising the level of frustration with nowhere else to go, and above all, obstruction in delivering traffic safety. Moruya By Pas and New Bridge will cut the Gordian Knott that we have all suffered for the past 150 years.

Dear Editor, if there is a vested interest, Moruya residents have right to know.

Once again the New Eurobodalla Hospital located in location at Moruya Airport is in my opinion the most practical solution, considering construction time and asset value, and I hope it would meet with overwhelming support of all residents.

Writing this from Moruya Hospital bed, and I would like to pay tribute to all hospital staff, working under challenging conditions in emergency department with enthusiasm and dedication.
