Residents want to turn corner with RTA

BELLINGEN residents continue to call for meaningful consultation with the RTA about the planned upgrade of Camerons Corner on the Waterfall Way.

Following a community meeting on Wednesday the spokesman for a number of concerned groups, Tim Cadman, said while there had been meetings with the RTA there had still been no real consultation.

“We want to know when they will let us negotiate (route) options,” Mr Cadman said.

A spokeswoman for the RTA said although a decision on a preferred route had been made, the community could still comment when the plans went on public display “in the near future”.

She said the RTA recognised the environmental sensitivity surrounding the area and was in the process of updating its Review of Environmental Factors, especially with regard to the impact of the upgrade on 0.5ha of Swamp Sclerophyll Forest, a listed endangered ecological community.

Mayor Mark Troy, who attended the meeting, said the council had inspected the site recently and would be taking a closer look at the matter.
