Petition to save the heritage Wallaby Scrub Road in the Hunter Valley from Open Cut Mining

We the undersigned demand the Premier of NSW Mike Baird and his Roads Minister Duncan Gay refuse to close Bulga's Wallaby Scrub Road to allow Warkworth Mining Limited (Rio Tinto) to destroy our convict built heritage road for open cut coal mining.

The owner of the road, Singleton Council, has reaffirmed its objection to the closure of Wallaby Scrub Road by voting against the closure at their recent meeting. Council is supporting the Bulga community, and we call on the Baird Government to do the same.

Baird's State Government has ignored the Land and Environment Court and the Supreme Court and abandoned the people of Bulga and Milbrodale in the Hunter Valley. The Commonwealth Government has worked hand in glove with the NSW Government to allow the destruction of world unique woodlands and aboriginal culture and history.

Wallaby Scrub Road is a heritage road built by the convicts and must be preserved as part of our European heritage. We must not allow a profit driven international mining company to destroy our heritage against wishes of the community and to mine a product which is destroying our planet.

    Rio Tinto claiming that the NSW Planning Assessment Commission found the “benefits” of the mine expansion outweighed the costs? Outrageous Statement!

    Only politically driven coal economics and unethical corporations would make such a gapingly empty statement!

    How do you place fossil fuel economics alongside cultural, historical and environmental significance and claim the later has lesser value?

    In an era where it is more then evident that our planet is succumbing to humanities insatiable use of its natural resources how is it that our government supports an unsustainable economy over the wellbeing of our unique ancient lands and the generations of community who will be left to nurse the post “benefits” devastation created!
