Count ‘em — one, two, three vehicles bogged at Oyster Harbour

Albany Advertiser

Well, that’s awkward.

The resident said she believed the Nissan Patrol became bogged yesterday on a stretch of beach she described as unsuitable for driving.

It seems the City of Albany then deployed a grader to help extricate the vehicle from the eastern shore of Oyster Harbour.

That attempt failed.

A loader went in next, with similarly unfortunate results.

The options from here are not clear.

The resident who submitted the photos said she had previously told the Department of Parks and Wildlife about the risks of vehicles using the boggy beach.

She had suggested authorities at least warn people they could become stuck.

The resident said she eventually took matters into her own hands and erected a sign.
