To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:

The petition of the undersigned shows:

We object to the state of the Princes Highway in the Bega electorate. In particular we draw to your attention the bridge at Pambula that is subject to flooding, and the necessity for heavy vehicles to travel through the main street of Bega.

Your petitioners request that the Senate should:

(1) declare the Princes Highway a road of National Importance;

(2) provide at least $5 million to the NSW State Government to match their contribution for the construction of a flood free bridge at Pambula; and

(3) provide funds for the construction of a heavy vehicle by pass for Bega.

by Senator Stephens (from 1,658 citizens).
