Mayoral Column

Do you want to save Windsor Bridge? You can vote yes or no in Council’s survey at www.yourhawkesbury-yoursay.com.au/windsorbr and cast your vote on whether you want to Save Windsor Bridge. I will be voting yes because once this bridge is gone, it is gone forever.

We are conducting this survey as part of community consultation that we believe the State Government should have done a long time ago. Such consultation about the demolition of the historic Windsor Bridge has been seriously lacking.

There has been a great deal of discussion about the replacement bridge but most people were unaware that the demolition of the old bridge was also going to take place. In the information distributed about the new bridge by the State Government, the fate of the old bridge was hardly mentioned.

Council supports saving our historic Windsor Bridge. We are asking the State Government to immediately stop the demolition of the old Windsor Bridge and conduct a proper public consultation about the bridge’s future.

You can sign the petition and ring the bell at Hawkesbury Regional Museum at 8 Baker Street, Windsor, Wednesday to Monday 10am to 4pm. Find out more at www.yourhawkesbury-yoursay.com.au/windsorbr
