Hi all,
In August, someone raised the issue of the proposed east-west connector in Mackay, Qld through the mangroves. I sent a protest email to the relevant minister and today (!) finally got a reply. This is what it boils down to:
"Action has been taken to add new land to the Bassett Basin Fish Habitat area and other measures will be provided to offset the impact of the loss of mangroves. This is a very worthwhile project that will bring considerable social and economic benefits to the Mackay community."  
Is there anyone in/near Mackay that would like to comment on the issue?
