Here is a quick update regarding matters that have come up since our last email (14 July), and information that has been sent through to us from Council.
Update since last email
- Jervis Bay Road/Princes Highway intersection – petition to State Government for a flyover to be built
- Someone may knock on your door with the petition, or you can find it in Boobook on Owen St (and probably other places). Please consider signing this petition if you support the flyover option over and above other solutions for traffic management at this very busy and dangerous intersection.
- Jerrinja application for the protection of the Anglican church site Survey
- The majority of responses advocated that the Voice supports the Jerrinja submission to Federal Government.
