United in highway protests
PROPOSED Pacific Highway routes continue to cause angst in the Clarence Valley, with two meetings taking place on the weekend.
At Pillar Valley more than 100 members of the community got together at the fire shed on Sunday afternoon for a for a family fun day.
The day was deemed a success with a barbecue, live entertainment, letter writing competitions and 'pin the emu on the map'.
Meanwhile at the Brushgrove/Tyndale Hall 75 residents rallied against highway route option A.
Tyndale Progress Association president Terry Radford said the meeting had been orderly but everyone had a chance to voice their concerns.
"We had residents from everywhere around here; Tyndale, Brushgrove, Ulmarra and some people up from Shark Creek," he said.
"There were a lot of concerns raised about a lot of issues. The main issue was flooding but ... people (also) spoke about economic and socio-economic impacts and the fragmentation of farms."
