LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY - Closed ePetition Details

Stop Centennial Coal putting 62,000 coal trucks a year on public roads in Western Lake Macquarie

Petitioner: Mr Jason Gordon | Member: Piper, Greg | No. of Signatories: 1,328 | Date closed: 03/09/2020
To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly, NSW Planning will soon consider an application by Centennial Coal to truck one million tonnes of coal per year over busy public roads in western Lake Macquarie. This will create 62,400 truck movements a year, or one every three minutes during the specified times of operation. This must not be allowed to happen. The undersigned petitioners ask that the Minister for Planning and Legislative Assembly: 1: Reject Centennial Coal’s application to move a million tonnes of coal a year over public roads in Lake Macquarie; 2: Ensure that future applications to allow coal haulage on public roads in Lake Macquarie are rejected, except for when there may be emergency short-term need to provide ongoing power generation.
