CANCEL PIL1 HIGHWAY #SOS# Keep Penang beautiful without pollution & environmental impact

CANCEL PIL1 ELEVATED HIGHWAY . BATAL LEBUHRAYA PIL1 . 取消Pil1 槟城更美好- Keep Penang beautiful without pollution & negative environmental impactWe, the affected and concerned people of Penang and Malaysia, would like to seek your favor to cancel the PIL1 project.After reviewing the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) report by Wiranda (M) Sdn. Bhd. we are very shocked to see impacts of the proposed Pan-Island Link 1 (PIL1). From the information given in the EIA, it is clear that the PIL1 will adversely affect the lives of ordinary people.Clearly, the noise, vibration, congestion and inconvenience during the construction period is a serious issue. What more, the noise, dust and exhaust fumes from the high volume of vehicles using the completed PIL1 will be a permanent cause of pollution and annoyance. The properties located along the 6 lane expressway and its feeder roads may drop in value as a result.The scenic beauty, tree-lined roads, and landmarks which are etched in the memories of Penangites and tourists will be lost or overshadowed by the expressway. Would the blasting of the hills cause landslides in Youth Park, Paya Terubong and Relau? Increase flash floods in Paya Terubong, Ayer Itam, Relau and other places? Will it cause the Penang Hill funicular railway to go out of alignment? We do not know and no one can guarantee its safety.The EIA has downplayed the potential impacts of the PIL1 on the health and wellbeing of residents, working people, schoolchildren and elderly people. For the sake of Penang and future generations, we appeal to you to “Please cancel PIL1 Highway project”.Thank you very much for your empathy and kindness.Best Regards,The concerned people of Penang 致 敬爱的曹首长敬请取消第一泛槟岛大道计划(PIL1) 我们作为受计划影响或关心此计划的人民,要求您取消槟城第一泛岛大道计划(Pil1)。 在审阅Wiranda(M)私人有限公司针对第一泛岛大道计划(Pil1)所提交的《环境冲击影响报告书》(EIA)后,我们对未来将预期造成的冲击,倍感担忧。《报告书》揭露: 槟城第一泛槟岛大道将无可避免的对民众生活带来负面影响,施工期间产生的噪音与震动与塞车,是民众每日首先面对的严重问题。 而未来峻工通车后所带来的车辆噪音、尘埃、与车辆废气等问题,将是永久存在污染源头及困扰。 槟城宜居的地景环境,与无数条珍贵的林萌绿带,以及几个让本屿或外州人士深富意义的地标,将因此消失殆尽或不复往日风采。此外,位于六线道高架大道或分支附近的产业价值,也将应声下跌。 我们无不因此担忧并怀疑:炸山是否引发青年公园、垄尾及湖内发生土石滑落山崩?或将造成垄尾、亚依淡、湖内及其他地区出现更频密的水灾?更甚,会造成升旗山缆车脱轨吗?......没人敢拍胸脯保证,各种不幸事件与后遗症是否发生? 针对大道计划对当地居民、上班族、学生与乐龄人士的健康福祉方面所带来的潜在影响,《环境评估报告书》也仅是轻描谈写,未多着墨。 况且,目前在轻轨地铁尚未兴建之时,且现存的公共交通系統尚未改善,又何必急于一时,匆促兴建这条六线道高架大道呢? 为了美丽槟城,为了下一代的福祉,我们恳请您:取消槟州第一泛岛大道計劃(PIL1)。感激同理与仁慈之心。 关怀槟城的马来西亚子民谨启 Kami, rakyat Pulau Pinang dan Malaysia yang prihatin dan terkilan, ingin mendapatkan sokongan anda untuk membatalkan Projek Lebuhraya PIL1. Selepas mengkaji Laporan Penilaian Impak Alam Sekitar (EIA) oleh Wirana (M) Sdn. Bhd., kami merakamkan rasa terkilan terhadap impak daripada projek Pan-Island Link 1 (PIL1) ini. Berdasarkan maklumat yang terkandung di dalam EIA, adalah amatlah jelas bahawa PIL1 bakal menjejaskan kehidupan seharian orang awam. Jelasnya, bunyi bising, getaran, kesesakan lalu lintas dan kesulitan semasa tempoh pembinaan merupakan isu yang serius. Apa lagi, penambahan isipadu kenderaan yang akan menggunakan PIL1 sudah tentu akan mengakibatkan pencemaran kekal dan gangguan termasuk bunyi bising, habuk dan ekzos asap. Akibatnya, hartanah-hartanah yang terletak di sepanjang lebuh raya 6 laluan dan jalan feeder berkebarangkalian turun mendadak dari segi nilai hartanah. Pemandangan yang indah, jalanraya berbaris pokok, dan mercu tanda yang terukir dalam memori penduduk Pulau Pinang dan pelancong, akan hilang atau terjejas oleh Lebuhraya ini. Mungkinkah letupan bukit menyebabkan tanah runtuh di Taman Belia, Paya Terubong dan Relau? Mungkinkah ia menjadi punca banjir kilat di kawasan Paya Terubong, Ayer Itam, Relau dan tempat-tempat lain? Mungkinkah ia akan menyebabkan keretapi funikular Bukit Bendera terkeluar daripada jajaran asal? Kami tidak tahu dan tidak ada siapa yang dapat menjamin keselamatannya. EIA telah meremeh-remehkan kesan PIL1 terhadap kesihatan dan kesejahteraan penduduk, pekerja, murid-murid sekolah dan orang tua. Demi kepentingan generasi Pulau Pinang dan masa depan, kami merayu kepada anda, "Batalkan Projek Lebuhraya PIL1!". Terima kasih di atas kerjasama dan keikhlasan anda semua.

Petition to Calmac

KEEP DOGS INDOORS ON CALMAC FERRIES!

I have started this petition as it has come to my attention that hundreds of people are complaining to Calmac about dogs being kept inside on the ferries, apparently in the way of people and a potential hazard. These people are trying to get Calmac to move their pet areas OUTSIDE, similar to other major ferry companies, who keep dogs in crates outdoors.  Not only is this unfair on our pets as we all know the harsh conditions of the minch, but also unfair on pet owners. For one as pet owners, we do not deserve to be banished outside purely for taking our pets with us, but also for pet owners who may have disabilities or young children, that means they simply cannot spend almost 3 hours in bitter cold winds and rain, and everything else the Scottish weather throws at us. We need the indoor ‘designated pet areas’ to be clearly marked, and preferably away from the crowds!  We need the pet areas clearly marked so those travelling without pets aren’t taking those seats, then commonly refusing to move for pet owners. It’s a longstanding issue, and while they have converted the rear of the ship to a pet area, which is great, the area is not clearly marked. Causing annoyance to those who have been asked to move for pet owners. A secure indoor area would have been ideal on the loch seaforth. I am sure there are many out there who agree that this is absurd and should not be followed through, but I need your help to prevent this from happening. I will be bringing this petition to Calmac once signatures are raised in the hope that we can show them this is not what the majority want. By keeping quiet we are allowing this to happen. Please take a minute from your day and sign this petition with me, Jessica

Petition to SECRETARY OF STATE FOR TRANSPORT AND SECRETARY OF STATE FOR CULTURE, MEDIA & SPORT

SAVE STONEHENGE WORLD HERITAGE SITE

PETITION: No further damage should be done to the archaeological landscape of Stonehenge. Future generations would be appalled at those who decided that road widening should be at the expense of England’s most iconic World Heritage Site. If A303 widening at Stonehenge is felt to be essential it should be done by means of a deep bored tunnel at least 4.5km long. Anything shorter would cause irreparable damage to this landscape, in breach of the World Heritage Convention. WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT? The UK Government proposes to widen the A303 trunk road to the south west. This road crosses the iconic Stonehenge World Heritage Site (WHS), which has been called “the most archaeologically significant land surface in Europe”. The whole site, extending to beyond the horizons around the famous stones themselves, is c. 5.4 km across. All of it makes up a “huge ancient complex” that holds many secrets yet to be discovered. The proposal is to put the road into a tunnel where it passes the stones, but the tunnel would be at most only 2.9 km long. This would result in at least 1.6 km of above-ground 21st-century road engineering within the WHS, consisting of new dual carriageway descending in massive trenches to the tunnel portals and possibly a new underpass with slip roads on the western WHS boundary. All archaeology in the construction zones would be destroyed and the A303 would become the largest ever human intervention in an area fashioned and revered by over a hundred generations of our ancestors. The whole Stonehenge landscape has an outstanding universal value that is of immense significance for all people for all time, and this transcends any consideration of sorting out a 21st century part-time traffic jam.
