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.

    Can you please stop mining in Australia. You are killing our homeland and destroying flora and fauna just to make a dollar. Why don’t you invest in solar energy that doesn’t hurt anyone.

    What is the mine going to do next – swallow up the village of Broke as it is getting VERY CLOSE VERY QUICKLY?

    Or maybe just destroy all the groundwater so they can get rid of the wineries and olive groves too?

    the NSW govt should support this message and cancel the proposed extension of the coal mine in the vicinity of the village of Bulga now threatened by the proposed Warkworth mine.
