Chance to speak up



Tonight is the night to have your say on what can be done to make politicians fix the Pacific Highway.

While Students for a Safer Highway, an initiative of the Southern Cross University Students' Association, have welcomed Pacific Highway interim safety measures at Bonville, they are calling for more.

"The lowering of speed limits, additional signage, and the provision of extra speed cameras are an important first step in improving safety of mo- torists at Bonville," welfare director of the Students' Association Jodie Dench said.

"There is, however, much more to be done to ensure the travelling public remains safe in our region."

The group are calling for the separation of traffic and an increased police presence, including mobile cameras around Bonville and Pine Creek.

They also want firm start and completion dates for the Bonville deviation.

"This will be the focus of the meeting," Ms Dench said.

"Until we have separated traffic on this notorious stretch of road, people's lives will still be at risk."

n The public meeting will be held today from 6pm in the D Block Theatre at Coffs Harbour Education Campus. Anyone interested in addressing the continued problems of the Pacific Highway is urged to attend.
