Wow, OK, surprised, but I don't really understand how they will accomplish entry from the other end. The runways and taxiways now are right up against the fence in the area of Beachside Villas and the other places on that end, so I don't see where they could put the road at that end. And in the middle is the beach, and that is a turtle nesting area.

Take a look at google earth. Unless they move the airport fence the road will go right through Karacters.

Most idiotic thing I have ever heard of. What they really need to to lengthen the runway the other way so they don't take off so close to the fence if that is even possible. Or ONLY take off toward the sea and not the mountain of that is possible. I have no idea how that even works.

So to get to Sunset you have to come all the way from Simpson Bay? Idiotic!
If I lived in that area I would NOT want the increased traffic.

This change will not happen. The road will remain the same spot.

Good. Personally speaking, I think the idea of routing through your area is totally ridiculous, Lesley. Not to mention, I can't imagine how that would work with cars tripping through the residential area along the runway, since there's really no place else for the road to go.

What happened recently is a shame but I'm a firm believer in personal responsibility.
