Anyone know what’s going on with this road?
Seen a few rumours on FB but nothing solid about the plan. Sounds like it could be bad news for a classic indo wave.

Word is a road raised a few meters running down reef from point down into bay ,2-3 km and a dam as well I've heard.Backwash a concern with this as well.Protests organised.

I saw this too, just doesn't make sense?

Why would they spend money on this?

The road would only be of use to the losemens, cant see how or why they would want it?

WQS 3 star there in September
Any coincidence?
Mate went through there recently and was impressed, what a shame to see this

If my neck issues resolve themselves and i can paddle again, was planning on being there in about 7 weeks. The photos on surfline dont look good and what a change from my last visit.
