FIVE BICYCLISTS RUN DOWN, ONE KILLED, IN ANOTHER SUBSTANDARD ROAD - CAUSED ACCIDENT IN TOWNSVILLE

Another cyclist dead.


BICYCLISTS IN TOWNSVILLE RIDE PAST
SITE OF FATAL ACCIDENT WITH FOUR OTHERS
INJURED BY TRUCK DRIVER
Didn't hear about this one?  That's because it was a tragic incident in our sister North Queensland city, Townsville, last Saturday morning.

The accident is strikingly similar to the vehicular homicide of Tanya Roneberg on the Cook Highway last month.  The Townsville accident took place on Shaw Road, part of the Townsville Ring Road system, and took the life of 58-year-old Sue Bell.  Along with Ms. Bell, four others were struck when a truck tried to overtake the group on their weekly 80km ride; a 62 year old Townsville man and three women, 58, 59, and 60.  

Like most of the roads built by the Queensland Government Main Roads department, Shaw Road is ill-equipped to handle cyclists - the substandard width and inadequate markings are little different than the crap we get in Cairns from these "road professionals".  And like the Roneberg accident site, cyclists are jammed up against a steel crash rail with no escape from an errant driver.

And just like the Roneberg tragedy in Cairns, the local LNP Member Sam Cox refuses to comment on the issue of substandard roads in his electorate.  Funny that.

Of special interest is the wide range of comments from the Townsville hillbillies after Townsville Triathalon Club president Max Fegan called for "road sharing" as has the Cairns community.

so let me get this right, masterbates votes AGAINST HIS unity team on the CEP, Bats, Fluoride and Taylor Point, all while bagging the lnp every chance he gets. What happens? The mayor rewards him with CBD funding, a multimillion dollar flood mitigation project and more bloody cycleways, all for his own division while the rest get bugger all. Either this bloke is the most cunning politician in town or he's Bobs love child.

I note the Townsville papers (as well as Brisbane) all mentioned the Roneberg crash here. But nothing about Townsville in the Cairns Post. Bloody typical.

Sad to see Townsville has its share of low life maggots too. Some grub stole the laptop containing irreplaceable photos that were to be used at the cyclist's funeral

Keep those syllables to a minimum Shanghai. You know there are readers who have minimal comprehension skills and need pictures to accompany your words.

WTF Shanghai ... are you saying Taylor Point is a great place to barbecue crocodiles?

The Townsville Bulletin is a massively superior paper to the Cairns Post CBD Warrior and I find it increasingly useful in comparison. I'm still stunned that the recent increase in insurance stamp duty which obviously impacts more in tropical regions was neglected at the Post while the Bulletin campaigned over several days including front page!

Sue Bell? Didn't she once work at the University Centre when it was in Greenslopes Street? Her age sounds about right.
