The only way to go
It is not rocket science, an overpass at Jervis Bay Road is the only sensible solution
The overpass will help with traffic flow and access to get onto the highway to get to work instead of waiting up to 15 minutes sometimes
If Gerringong got their overpass,why are we not worthy of the same?
The number of tourists entering and exiting the Bay and Basin is in its thousands over holiday periods and only growing each month.

Go over and merge
I vote for the overpass over the Princes Highway and merge onto the Princes Highway.

Harder times ahead
The last three months have been some of the strangest times of my life. Living on the South Coast, New Year's Eve is a nightmare that will be forever etched in my brain.
A couple of houses were lost in my suburb. It felt like we were surrounded, and then the wind changed, and my relief was someone else's worst nightmare.
Communities sprang up overnight that had previously just been a suburb.
Social media facilitated new friendships with neighbours you might have never seen or a relationship that only required the nod of a head or a hand wave from time to time.
Celebrities and the bloke next door banded together to deliver food, hay convoys and put on concerts and donations came in for enough to feed a third world country.
Yet people who lost everything are still waiting.
If they haven't been able to get all the help they need by now, what happens to them as the country slowly but surely shuts down?
We have never prepared for moments like this and the misinformation and fear that is being spread can be more terrifying than the reality.
It is understandable people are scared.
Close your eyes and imagine how you would feel if you had lost everything and didn't have the luxury of your home and your belongings when you must self-isolate.
Throughout this whole crisis we have heard about protecting our vulnerable.
People who lost everything are vulnerable.

I have to wait 12 months for double hysterectomy and prolapse, At the moment I am in extreme discomfort.
It is depressing i have to wait one year to have this fixed ,,, may as well put my head in a bucket of water.

Need for resilience
With the coronavirus genie well and truly out of the bottle and running rampant what next?
Cancellations of community events and public gatherings representative of all facets of normal life, one has to ask this question.
Have our wasteful years of self indulgence and reliance upon government to prop up and finance so many aspects of our lives left us unable to cope with the extremes of personal hardship experiences arising from natural disasters?
The Prime Minister has charted a course which will require much restraint and resilience from us if we are to overcome the challenges ahead.
Government stimulus packages have their place but good old fashioned personal toughness is what is most required.
The failures of the past of allowing energy prices and the cost of living pressures to spiral out of control is further adding to the problem.
The adage of when the going gets tough the tough get going comes to mind and we may soon find out how tough a society we really are.
