Shaw's Bird Park is 7ha of beautifully paved bird park that is home to well over 500 native trees and multiple varieties of birds. Murray and Margaret bought this property when it was a gully full of blackberry and gorse and now it is a wonderful breeding ground for birds. They breed Mandarin, Carolina and Grey Teal ducks.
The East/West motorway is going straight through the property and within meters of our house. We have lived on this property over 25 years and now the council have decide to put a motorway right through our hard work when there are less invasive and cheaper options. By moving the plan less than 1 km south it can go through farmland instead of carving up the bird park.
In order to proceed with their current plan the Hamilton City Council will need to fill the lakes, remove the trees, destroy the aviary's and wild birds homes and build a multi million dollar viaduct to span the gully. There are much better options available that are at a significantly lower cost to the ratepayers of Hamilton and don't involve destroying our homes and the birds habitats.
