EVERY day Ron Fanning drives along Burrendong Way he says he fears for his life.
Mr Fanning said he had lived in the area his whole life, and was bitterly disappointed Cabonne Council did not fix the road in 2010 after $710,000 was allocated to fix it.
“It's only half a job,” he said.
“If you're turning out of Mulyan Road you can't see far enough to see oncoming traffic.
“It isn't safe.”
Mr Fanning said he could not work out why council had not erected more guard rails past Mulyan Road.
He says the existing railing is inadequate.
“There needs to be more guard railing. If you come off the edge just past the railing it's straight into a tree,” he said.
Former council staffer Charlie Smith said he spent 45 years working on roads for Cabonne Council.
He said when council spent the money on Burrendong Way they did not draw up the plans properly.
“It's a shocking job, there are still blind hills everywhere,” he said.
“The money was wasted. They should have put in a new culvert instead of extending the old one.
“They should have cut through part of Centofanti corner.”
Council spokesman Dale Jones said the work carried out on Burrendong Way was completed to the standards outlined by Roads and Maritime Services (RMS).
“Council did everything to the specifications of the RMS,” he said.
“The RMS approved the design and the completed job.”
Mr Fanning does not hold much hope council will allocate any funding for works on Burrendong Way past Mulyan Road.
“The black spot funding from the government is all gone,” he said.
“Every time I go to town I take my life in my hands.”
