ROADS MINISTER CARL SCULLY INVITED TO INSPECT LAWRENCE HARGRAVE DRIVE

Cunningham MP Michael Organ has written to Roads Minister Carl Scully to give further impetus to the campaign to get Lawrence Hargrave Drive open permanently.

“I have written to Mr. Scully today requesting that he join me and local residents for a site inspection of the affected area, along with RTA experts”, Mr. Organ said.

“Clearly this inspection will add to the quality of the representations that I am able to make to the Federal Government on behalf of the people of the Illawarra, which in turn will increase the likelihood of gaining significant financial assistance from Canberra.”

“I am also of the firm view that an inspection will increase the understanding of the engineering and social problems that this road closure has and continues to have upon all key stakeholders with an interest in this issue.”

“The ball is now firmly in Mr. Scully’s court and it is now up to him to respond in person to the significant distress and disruption the closure of Lawrence Hargrave Drive has caused to the residents of the Northern Illawarra”, Mr. Organ added.
