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.

    It’s time we looked after our heritage – this is very worthy of protection. Please listen to the people, once it is gone we’ve lost some amazing history!

    The big thumb of mining has weighed the scales down in favour of one aspect of society only. There is more to good government than shoring up the interests of corporate players and the brief gains brought to some workers. The treatment of Mr Taggart in his defense of the road stands as an appalling yet symbolic act of the Protected bully boys in this industry, aided and abetted by government.
