One Horsham bypass group urges residents to attend public meeting

One Horsham bypass consultative group has invited Horsham district residents and community groups to attend a public meeting at Sunnyside Bowling Club next Tuesday.

The meeting, starting at 7.30pm, will allow people to air concerns about proposed VicRoads routes for a Western Highway bypass of Horsham and how they can make concerns heard.

The group argues that the two routes, ‘that go through the deepest part of the Wimmera River and Burnt Creek floodplain east of Horsham’, are inappropriate.

It also argues that for the routes to continue north-west to the highway past Horsham aerodrome, under the flight path immediately east of the main runway of the aerodrome in Option B2, and south of the north-south runway in an Option D, is also unacceptable.

Maps of the VicRoads preferred options and other material are on display at VicRoads’ Horsham office and Horsham Civic Centre.

One Horsham group members remain dissatisfied after attending the VicRoads meeting at Wimmera Trade Training Centre on July 23.

They claim they were unable to obtain satisfactory answers about the disruption to water flows in times of flood and how they were to access their properties around intersections.
