Family seeks signage over dangerous road

THE family of a 27-year-old who was killed on the Gayndah-Mount Perry Rd near Mingo Crossing late last year are calling for signage to be put up.

Stepfather Dooly Tye has been calling for action since the accident in December.

"In the meantime, we just want proper signage to warn people of the changed conditions,” Mr Tye said.

Mr Tye said he was disappointed that six months later, no signs have been put up.

"It is disappointing, it could cost another life,” he said.

In a bid to direct State Government's attention to the 26km of unsealed road, Mount Perry Community Development Board is compiling a portfolio of incidents that have occurred due to the road's conditions.

Mayor Rachel Chambers said she wanted the road improved.

"We are working with Ian, Kim and their family to lobby the state government to improve safety on this road,” Cr Chambers said.

"This road has a long history of being beneath community standards and people should not have to lose their life in order for the state to take our concerns seriously.”
