Letter from Graeme Wilkie. VicRoads has removed vegetation and placed netting over the rocks on the Great Ocean Road escarpment north of Lorne. Habitat value and amenity destroyed. Surf Coast Times Thursday 16 July 2015. There are reports that a peregrine falcon’s nesting site has been netted over.
“Destruction of the amenity of our world-class scenic drive.”
“How far can we expect this vandalism to go, the entire length of the Great Ocean Road?”
This is just awful! How can they justify this? Was there any community consultation? Just plain environmental vandalism! What’s going to stop erosion and rock falls now. I’ve lost complete faith in our decision-makers.
