RTA encourages bridge debate
THE RTA responded yesterday to The Daily Examiner’s story about including younger people in the Grafton bridge debate.
"The RTA encourages people of all ages to take part in community consultation workshops held in their areas," the statement said.
"The most recent community workshops for the second crossing of the Clarence River were held in both the afternoon and the evening to allow for the community, regardless of education or work commitments, to attend and provide feedback."
"Recent postal and telephone surveys captured a wide range of ages including young residents who provided helpful feedback.
"The RTA received suggestions during a recent community workshop on further ways to encourage younger people to get involved in the decision-making process. These suggestions are being explored."
Community forums and project updates are posted online regularly and can be viewed at www.rta.nsw.gov.au.
To provide feedback, the community is encouraged to contact the project team on the free information line 1800 633 332, via email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by dropping into the RTA’s office on Prince Street, Grafton.
