Latest BAG Updates

February 2017

Our ongoing negotiations with RMS continue, and we are pleased that they have agreed to keep the eucalypts on the north side of the Great Western Highway (GWH) between Evans Lookout Rd and Chelmsford Ave, in front of the cemetery, and between Radiance and Sunbeam Aves.

RMS have stated that they will do everything possible to keep the large plane tree on the SW corner of GWH and Bundarra St. The air spading to map the roots of this tree is scheduled for the week of  Monday 6th Feb.

We have had productive meetings with our Ward 1 Councilors and both State and Federal Members and have gained their support.

WE ARE ASKING FOR YOUR SUPPORT in requesting that the RMS install a SAFETY CAMERA at the intersection of Govetts Leap Road and the GWH. The more people do this the better chance we have!
