MP's push to fix Byron walkway
BALLINA MP, Don Page, says he has contacted the National Parks and Wildlife Service to ensure their assessment of the Byron Shire Council’s Review of Environmental Factors will be conducted expediently to minimise further delays on the replacement of the Lighthouse Road walkway.
“I’m pleased to advise that the local National Parks and Wildlife Service has indicated that when they receive the environmental assessment from council they will give the matter priority and deal with it straight away.
“National Parks and Wildlife indicated they expected to have a turnaround time of three to four weeks, hopefully three weeks,” Mr Page said.
“Given the totally unacceptable delays on this project to date (it is now five years since the walkway collapsed) it is good to see National Parks and Wildlife will deal with their side of it quickly when they get the Review of Environmental Factors from Council which should be next week,” Mr Page said.
