Thanks for being so patient

IT'S BEEN a long drive for Southside residents waiting for Power Rd to be upgraded but finally the job is done.

The upgrade was supposed to finish about five months ago but wet weather and floods have conspired to hold up council crews.

Many Southside residents have been going the long way to work now for 11 months and, depending where you live, it was adding 10-15 minutes to the commute to work.

Also the detour around the roadwork was causing some heartache for residents living on the route.

Their usually quiet roads were being knocked around by the extra traffic. Thankfully it's all over and residents' lives can get back to normal.
