Trucks off the Pacific Highway - please sign the submission
You may have read in the paper or seen on TV the protest advertisements regarding the RTA and their plan to move the highway closer to the coats and put a motorway through Broken Head.
At a community meeting regarding this 4 recommendations were made;
- move the interstate freight back to the New England Highway
- investigate alternative inland freight routes and rail options immediately
- upgrade Tintenbar to Ewingsdale to a class A highway on the existing corridor
- support Ballina council for an immediate start to a Ballina Bypass
These recommendations are also in our best interests even though the highway has already been upgraded here. A motorway would certainly increase the amount of freight on our highway and sending interstate freight back to the New England Highway is certainly in our interests.
Please sign the submission regarding these recommendations, it will benefit us as well, the deadline has been extended to the 24 November 2005, which is still only 10 days away.
