We are having a rally on the 2nd December to officially hand over our submission forms to the RTA and Joe Tripodi. This will involve a slow drive from St Helena to Ballina. We are asking all people who wish to take part in this to meet at St Helena Road at 8.30 am for a 9.00 am sharp start. The RTA and Local Councils have been notified and have no objections to this slow drive and we will be having a police escort. Would people driving tractors leave them at St Helena road the night before, ring Geoff Dorey to find out the property where they can be safely left (mobile: 0428 872 172), Otherwise if this is too difficult tractors can meet at points along the way. All unregistered vehicles such as tractors require a conditional permit, ring Geoff Dorey for details. At Ballina the vehicles will turn right into Kerr Street, left into River Street and follow River Street around to Missingham Bridge parking area, where we will take part in the official handing over of submission forms and a bar-b-que. Any inquiries about this ring: Geoff Dorey 0428 872 172

I have spoken with the RTA and if anyone who wants to participate with a tractor which is not registered can do so by the following;
Go into the RTA with the make,model and serial numbers for their tractor.
Ask for a permit to move the tractor on a designated day and a specified route.
The cost is only about $29 and a few dollars cheaper if you have your primary producer declaration
Please pass this on to everyone.

- Trucks off the Pacific Highway - please sign the submission
You may have read in the paper or seen on TV the protest advertisements regarding the RTA and their plan to move the highway closer to the coats and put a motorway through Broken Head.
At a community meeting regarding this 4 recommendations were made;
- move the interstate freight back to the New England Highway
- investigate alternative inland freight routes and rail options immediately
- upgrade Tintenbar to Ewingsdale to a class A highway on the existing corridor
- support Ballina council for an immediate start to a Ballina Bypass
These recommendations are also in our best interests even though the highway has already been upgraded here. A motorway would certainly increase the amount of freight on our highway and sending interstate freight back to the New England Highway is certainly in our interests.
Please sign the submission regarding these recommendations, it will benefit us as well, the deadline has been extended to the 24 November 2005, which is still only 10 days away.
