VicRoads is planning to duplicate 12km of the Western Highway near Ararat, including a 5.7km deviation from the
highway through hilly landscape. New data shows that a well designed double highway using the existing route is much
VicRoads claim their procedures have been proper and thorough. We cannot let them continue this expensive and
destructive development while they continue to rely on a discredited Environmental Effects Statement. The consequence
of continuing would be as major as the destruction of thousands of trees, many between 500 and 700 years old, in earlier
stages of the project.
Say NO to unnecessary destruction of our Country. Our local, centuries-old trees and precious wildlife are at risk of being
uprooted and decimated by this construction. Aboriginal heritage trees are also at risk of being destroyed forever. As
planned, this project maximises loss of Aboriginal heritage, contributes to climate change and local extinctions.
Every contribution, large or small, helps us protect environment from the effects of unsympathetic development and destruction.
Once a very old tree is felled it is gone.
We need your support today to reach our goal.
