We have protest signs for purchase ($10.00). It is
our aim to have as many signs visible in our municipality as
possible. This will send a strong message to our State,
Federal and Local politicians that we do not support the
government's plan to put a freeway, tunnel or viaduct through
Banyule, nor do we support the government spending $15.4 million on
the study for the NE link freeway.
Clearly, there is much work needed to improve congestion on our
roads, but a freeway is not the answer. A freeway, tunnel or
viaduct will encourage more traffic to our area at the
'interchange' points of the freeway, as well as increases in
pollution that will threaten our unique flora and fauna. Massive
ventillation stacks would need to be built for a tunnel that will
destroy the beauty of our area. Imagine the disruption to
Banyule over the more than 10 year construction period.
Imagine the acquisition of land for Staging Areas - each one of
these areas which are required to build the tunnel would be the
size of 3 sports ovals!
If you are unable to purchase a sign but would still like to
show your support by putting one in your front yard (or on your
back fence), please contact us and we will be happy to give you a
Put up a 'No Freeway' sign and help us with the campaign. Send
us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to
order your sign today.
