Too Many Wildlife Deaths At Tower Hill (Victoria) - SAVE OUR PRECIOUS WILDLIFE

This petition had 412 supporters


On 15th April 2019, a community meeting was held at St Brigids Hall (Crossley) in order to discuss potential strategies to reduce the increasing number of the precious wildlife of Tower Hill (Victoria) being killed by passing vehicles on Lakeview Road and Scenic Drive. This meeting has resulted in an open letter to Moyne Shire Council, which will be submitted once signatures of those in attendance at the meeting and other concerned individuals have been obtained. The recommendations are summarised below (the complete letter is available for perusal at numerous shops in Commercial Road, Koroit, including The Bookworm, The Local Place, and the Newagency).

We ask that you please sign below if you agree that FURTHER SPECIES ENDANGERMENT IS UNACCEPTABLE and the WILDLIFE DEATHS MUST BE CURTAILED before it is too late.

Recommendations:

  • Reduction of speed limit to 60 kph from the intersection of Lakeview Road & Princes Highway through to where it joins Koroit-Port Fairy Road and continued onto and past the Lowery Road intersection
  • Reduction of speed limit to 40 kph on Scenic Drive
  • Place rumble strips at 50 metre intervals
  • Placement of flashing warning speed lights
  • Improve driver vision by removal of vegetation and any structures that would prevent a driver seeing an animal
  • Investigate cost of 'virtual fencing' (refer: Wildlife Safety Solutions)
  • Placement of large, colourful signage informing drivers they are entering a 'Tourist Drive' section of road
  • Installation of single lane 'concrete mound' roundabouts at the corners of Lakeview/Woodford Road, Lakeview/Lake Street, Lakeview/Koroit-Port Fairy Road, and Koroit-Port Fairy Road/Lowery Road
  • Declare an Open Space around the perimeter of Tower Hill State Game Reserve, thus enhancing its natural appeal and normalising the activities which already occur there
