Community group puts spotlight on Moruya Bypass plan

Community-Made Mapping, Eurobodalla say that Transport for NSW has not fairly consulted the community in designing the Moruya Bypass. The newly formed collective responsible for the graphics below say "They have handed us a report and evaluations which do not accurately present the impacts for the community, have engaged a "Community Consultation" via non-disclosure agreement, and instructed residents not to talk to one another. "Rather than listening to the community's needs, TfNSW have presented their preferred option which would create further issues and actually worsen the key issue of traffic congestion. "We need fair consultation for this community. We need real solutions to the issues at hand. Disclaimer: This is an attempt by the community to communicate a more honest comparison of the various options presented. These drawings are not from TfNSW but are instead an independent review and comparison derived from freely available data (sources below). This is for the community, by the community, because TfNSW isn't. Walkable map of options & corridors: https://www.google.com/maps/d/edit... More roads make more traffic, not less. We need safer roads, not more.
