Gloves off as Imbil demands answers over Rattler Co actions

Letter to the Editor from Coll Huddy, Imbil Heritage Precinct

I AM amazed that the Rattler Railway Company could fail to understand the impact of their recent actions regarding the turntable at Imbil. Are they that stupid?

READ MORE: Councils' turntable issues are a case of deja vu

READ MORE: Imbil says hands off our station!

The lack of community consultation by RRC confirms what we have believed for some time: RRC is willing to ride rough shod over the community whilst continually failing to deliver its one objective: to get the Rattler running.

Not one of the delays has been acknowledged as the fault of management.

 

Brings us to some key questions:

1. Why did they not consult the Imbil community or its representatives?

2. Are they so ignorant they cannot recognise that the Imbil community has a real interest in maintaining the station precinct in its current form and gets upset when they see it being destroyed?

3. Do they not understand that their actions seem to confirm the Rattler will never come back to Imbil whilst this management team is in place?

4. Do they care about Imbil?

Please, RRC and Gympie Regional Council, provide Imbil with some rationale for their management approach?

Secretary Imbil Heritage Park Inc
