The group is concerned about the RTA's plans for highway lighting at the Wrecker's Corner interchange, since the locals were not consulted despite its significant effect on humans, other animals and the environment. We believe that it is far more than necessary, and likely to be constructed in such a way as to light up much of the countryside as well as the road.
Action is urgently needed to stand a chance of a better outcome. Debbie, Joel, Gail, Dianne and Mitra met last Tuesday 8th: Mitra Prepared a fact sheet; Mitra has been on Param's show "Interesting Times" on Bay FM; Debbie Got an article into the Echo; Mitra Discussed the issue with Ian Cohen - Federal MLC for the Greens - who is meeting with John Scully next week; Debbie has talked to the Project Manager and RTA head of the Pacific Highway; Debbie has been trying to get a copy of the RTA's rules, but appears to be getting the run-around.
We are organizing a public meeting for Monday 22nd at Tyagarah Hall at 7pm, (Debbie spoke to them today - Tuesday - and a representative from the RTA will be there). Please read the fact sheet, and contact Debbie (66843420 firstname.lastname@example.org) if you can help.
Joel wants us to focus on solutions around minimizing impact of the lighting because its unlikely we will be able to influence the RTA regarding the amount of lumination
