Winter Newsletter

A precise of the minutes of the meeting.
Of note is the lack of support for pedestrian safety on the Wentworth Falls rail bridge at Station street by firstly BMCC in delining to provide a pedestrian safety barrier along the length of the bridge and secondly a rejection by the Min of Regional Roads Maritime and Transport to consider a realignment of the bridge to improve pedestrian and traffic safety. This is most disappointing.
At the next meeting we will need to discuss the course of action to take this issue further. Next meeting Monday 7th Aug at 6pm Grand View Hotel. Look forward to seeing you there.
