AS a former resident and now frequent visitor to the Redlands, I'd like to thank the Redland City Council for its efforts over the past 12 years in establishing and maintaining the wonderful Eddie Santagiuliana Way, which runs from Cleveland Point down along the foreshore into Thornlands.
The route is used constantly by cyclists and walkers and travels along the foreshore of your wonderful city. The way is a great tribute to one of your former mayors, but just as importantly recognises the work of all the council over the years in providing this facility.
Ongoing upgrades of the walkway have seen planting more trees, information signs detailing directions and important points on the flora and fauna, shelters, boardwalks and bridges over the creeks and wetlands along the way.
One small criticism, however . . . some areas of the walkway get flooded during wet times and because of poor drainage become impassable for many days. A bit of drainage attention would help.
Otherwise . . . everyone should take the time to enjoy a walk along this wonderful asset for the Redlands. - A. J. Graham, Tweed Heads
