KARMA has been vetoed by the council as a name for an Elbow Valley Road, with one councillor saying the name was born out of "contempt and cynicism".

Southern Downs Regional Council decided against the proposed name at an engineering services meeting this week.

Councillor Ross Bartley said the issue was part of a long-running dispute and said the name was derived from the conflict.

It was determined the name did not have any historical significance and was deemed inappropriate.

St Helen's Gate Rd and Bartoo Rd were suggested as alternatives to Karma.

It was decided St Helen's Gate Rd was too long a name and would cause difficulties with signing and it was suggested that removing the word "Gate" could possibly solve the issue.

The councillors decided to do some further research into would be an appropriate name for the road and will revisit the matter at an upcoming meeting.
