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.

    The Federal and NSW State Governments have gone against decisions of the Land and Environment Court and the Supreme Court in granting Warkworth Mining Limited (Rio Tinto) permission to destroy the village of Bulga. Now the mining company is being allowed to destroy Wallaby Scrub Road, a heritage road built by convicts, This is part of our European heritage, can never be replaced or repaired, and should not become part of an open cut mine. It is also beyond time we stopped all new coal approvals and extensions, as climate change wreaks global havoc and climate scientists tell us that effects of global warming are happening faster than predicted, NO NEW COAL!

    A public road is NOT for facilitating private business.

    It is absolutely disgusting what the Governments and Mining companies are doing to our beautiful country and to the people who reside in these lovely places and who just want to live in peace without the bully-boy tactics that the NSW Government is applying to these areas. Whose side are they on? Just money grabbing without any thought to are heritage and future in this country. Shame on you the Baird Government – hang your heads in shame. You politicians are put into Government to do the will of the people not to feather your own nests. Shame on you these mining companies riding roughshod over these decent people who just want to protect the place they live and love. Leave them alone!
