You can Help Save iconic Toodyay road

Current road works taking place between the Jingaling Brook Road and Lovers Lane on Toodyay Road have caused environmental destruction not anticipated by the Toodyay and surrounding community.

This level of destruction of beautiful rural scenery and native bush that contributes to the value of Toodyay as a destination is neither necessary or justified in order to improve road safety.

If you were shocked by these recent road works, future plans see even larger clearing footprints with realignments that only marginally improve the safety of Toodyay road.

Gone will be: old-growth eucalypt, native orchids, priority classified plants such as the purple beaufortia (featured), hollows that birds and other wildlife rely on to survive, food sources that cannot be easily replaced.
