Help us save the rural aspect of Plenty

This petition had 478 supporters

We need your help, please sign to save the character of Plenty, a quiet, low density residential area in the North East of Melbourne.

Plenty is often referred to as a ‘Hamlet’. It is a beautiful area, loved by its residents for its casual country feel, its natural landscape, old trees and abundance of wildlife.

Yan Yean Road runs through the middle of Plenty and is lined by Large Old Eucalypt trees, many of which are hundreds of years old.

Yan Yean Rd is to be widened to 4 lanes with a concrete median strip, concrete paths and metal barriers. The road will also be realigned to go straight through the treed gully.

3054 trees are proposed to be removed for the 3.9 km road duplication project.

We can save hundreds of trees, the remaining aboriginal heritage site, and the rural character of the area without any change to the proposed traffic lanes if Vic Roads adopts our minor changes. Vic Roads is currently working on the details of the road design, so now is a critical time to sign this request.

Please sign to support our request to Vic Roads to:

  • Avoid the use of sloping embankments where trees need to be removed for these embankments
  • Build the proposed 3m wide shared path on the western side of the road with asphalt rather than concrete
  • Locate the shared path to minimise tree removal
  • Provide a mowed grass or gravel nature strip on the eastern side of the road around existing trees
  • Locate associated drainage facilities in areas which do not require removal of trees
