27 July 2010 COUNCIL

To the Legislative Council of Victoria:

The petition of certain citizens of the state of Victoria draws to the attention of the Legislative Council that as electors entitled to vote for the members of the Parliament, we judge the close proximity to our community of the proposed six-lane Surf Coast Highway connection (Geelong Ring Road, section 4C) to be extremely bad for our community, diminishing our quality of life and devaluing our houses. This proposed highway has not been subjected to community consultation during its planning process which has not been conducted in an honest, open or transparent manner, contrary to the core values of the Geelong City Council and VicRoads.

The petitioners therefore request that the Legislative Council of Victoria note that our will is that if the highway is built, we require it to be built south along the Boundary Road alignment which is south of its present planned route, where it would go through as much vacant land as possible, adversely affecting as few residents as possible. If it is build in the currently planned position, the petitioners will hold the state government and VicRoads responsible for any loss of value of our properties and reduction in our quality of life, through increased noise levels and air pollution that will result from the close proximity of the construction of this proposed highway to our homes.

By Mr KAVANAGH (Western Victoria) (894 signatures).

Laid on table.
