A speedy proposal has been put forward to run a very
large and very fast moving Catamarran service from
Stoney point on the Mornington Peninsula to George
Town in Tasmania.
The vessel is proposed to carry over 200 vehicles with
what is estimated to 2.5 persons per vehicle?
Could someone please steer me in the right direction
re: what is the governing body for speeds of vessels
whilst they are in the Western Port bay area?
Surely the oil carried by the vehicles is enough to
warrant a large and full scale investigation into this
proposal? let alone the fuel used by the craft itself?
I've got enough reading to keep me busy for a while
about the plans for the service, if anyone would like
them just email this email address for a copy.
What I firstly ask is where is or was? the
consultation process? surely residents of the areas to
be affected should have been spoken to re: traffic
increase and the many many more other issues?
In Westernport Bay we have a RAMSAR site, a JAMBA
and a CAMBA site, surely speeding past these locations
must be critical and could easily be viewed as a "CAT
astrophic" event waiting to happen, not only to the
waders we have here, but to the birds that fast swim,
I wonder what the Vic Govt. and private companies have
donated to the Phillip Island projects?
Seals ain't seals eh?
Perhaps that's it .... twin hulled fast moving fairy
slices them in half and we end up with double the
amount of waders, penguins, seals, whales ......
P.S. What about the whales we get in the bay? gee that
was a good find and many thanks to Jean Edgecombe for
Sings in a Gummy and angry state:
They don't realise how much we need them,
We love them all the time,
Were never leave them,
So come on back JG,
Were as cut up as can be,
We need you,
They said they had a thing or two to tell me,
I said, I guess I knew it would upset me,
So come now TT,
And spread some honesty,
When need you,
Oh yes you told me,
You don't want my phone calls anymore,
That's when it hurt me,
And feeling like, I just can't gone anymore,
More later when me teev eels.
