Nymboida children under threat

The Nymboida State Forest is just now starting to be logged. With this destruction of forest, in the location that Grafton and Coffs Harbour gets it's water supply from, the local animals such as koalas, endangered black cockatoos and endangered powerful owl, there is also a threat to the local school children as the logging trucks have said they are not stopping work during school bus hours. this is extremely dangerous to all locals and people who have driven down Glens Creek Road would know what I mean. The mostly dirt road is only just large enough in most parts of the road for two cars to pass each other if they both go off the road a bit so a logging truck passing a school bus is just a death sentence. The solution the forestry corporation's solution is to give the bus driver a radio so that the truck driver can tell the bus when to get off the road so that the truck can go past. This is despicable that the bus driver should have to pull over and wait for a logging truck to go past. how is the locals meant to not get hit by the trucks and how do they know when to pull over in a wider part of the road to let the truck go past in the narrow part of the road and we all know that logging trucks are big, drive way too fast and can't stop suddenly. This is just a disaster waiting to happen, one that will shock the entire community. It would be really great for a story to be told about whats going on in Nymboida so that the public know.
