The proposed Bruce Highway interchange upgrade threatens to devastate one of our few remaining lowland forests containing threatened & endangered species.

We are meeting with Mark Bailey, Main Roads Minister, next week and we need your full support to make sure we are heard. So let’s make lots of noise. See you on Saturday!!!

HOW: attend the rally and show you care - there will be the following opportunities:
• banner making come early at 11:30am - bring any materials you already have
•    forest walks at 1:30pm crossing at the lights
•    come dressed up as a native Australian animal (or plant if you are really creative)
•    bring your own musical instrument Meet at Jowarra Park (near Daisy’s Place) and walk to the forest across the road

BACKGROUND: The Department of Main Roads “preferred” design for a new intersection as part of the Bruce Highway upgrade, clear fells this 24ha section of high conservation value forest. They intend to put a new roundabout in the forest and bulldoze a new road linking the roundabout to the Bruce Highway. This part of the design has been described as "ludicrous" and "ridiculous" by our local politicians who also have said that they are committed to saving this forest.

With this bipartisan political support we need you to show that you care and that ACTION must follow these WORDS. Save Steve Irwin Way Forest group
