A blog about Lamb Island in Moreton Bay, Queensland – a unique little paradise under forty kilometres as the seagull flies from Brisbane CBD.
Because of restraints on time, and let’s face it, only limited material on a small island, some posts are being recycled/updated from earlier.

Roadworks ahead.

The bitumen-sealing of those Lamb Island side streets as-yet un-blacktopped has always depended on Council budgets and priorities. But now someone’s come up with a system that makes road-sealing faster and therefore cheaper. It’s called ‘two coat bitumen sealing’, and while it’s not suitable for roads that have to carry a lot of traffic, it’s perfect for our quieter island streets. So at the moment, along with the usual birdsong, the island is ringing with the sounds of heavy machinery and reversing ‘beep-beep-beeps’ as selected roads are prepared – and it’s music to the adjacent residents’ ears.
