I am writing about the need for a wildlife warning road sign on the section of the Old Pacific Highway between the Brunswick Fish Co-op and the northern roundabout adjacent to the wetlands.
This stretch of road flanks the Brunswick Nature Reserve on the south and the river foreshore to the north. It is a high-traffic road, being the northern entrance to Brunswick Heads and also the main connector to Ocean Shores. It is not lit and I have frequently seen wallabies on the side of the road at dusk and night-time. This morning riding my bike along this stretch of road I passed a dead wallaby obviously hit by a car.
This section of road is a wildlife corridor and it needs to be signposted as such – for the protection of creatures and people alike.
