‘Many residents believe and are convinced, due to the inundation experienced in locations that have never, in known history, ever flooded that the M1 has contributed greatly to the devastation,’ said assocation secretary Eva Heath.
‘The M1 has effectively created a dam splitting the flood plain.
‘This was raised with the then RTA when the highway was being constructed but warnings from ‘old locals’ were ignored and now the warnings have come to fruition.’
The Tweed shire council, Bureau of Meteorology, NSW SES Richmond Tweed region, NSW SES Murwillumbah unit and crisis ready will be also be attending.
The aim of the meeting is to build an accurate picture of each community’s experiences and perspectives during the recent flood events. They will discuss ways that everyone can work with communities to continue to improve your preparation, response and recovery to disaster events.
