Wake up people! The RTA (alias the RMS) is building an enormous ugly freeway through our beautiful country, right through our hills, our valleys and our creeks, destroying the landscape and creating a big scar on Mother Earth.
Bugger Bangalow and Ewingsdale and the animals – the trucks want to go faster. What’s wrong with slowing down going up a hill? You can enjoy the view and take a breather.
Why do we need to drive so fast? What’s the rush? Where are we going? We’re already here – paradise! Didn’t we choose to live here because we wanted to slow down, to live a more relaxed lifestyle. We left the city behind – didn’t we?
The RTA doesn’t care about our communities or nature – Ewingsdale is going to have a massive concrete structure on top of it and St Helena hill is to be destroyed with a tunnel.
Why aren’t we outraged by this crazy development, or have we become complacent?
Byron Shire is unique. Don’t let it become like everywhere else with roads, noise and pollution dominating people’s lives. Let’s protect our part of the world – it’s too beautiful to lose.
