Overpass is go

Sunday, 1 July, 2018

The approved route for the new road over rail overpass planned for Gunnedah.

Violeta Hiscock

Gunnedah’s second road over rail bridge will go ahead along the preferred route announced in August.

Minister for Roads and Freight Duncan Gay and Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson has confirmed work would now start on development of the concept design and environmental approvals.

The route includes acquisition of at least two properties to allow the access to Barber Street requested by local businesses.

Once again, the news has come as a surprise to Barber Street resident Violeta Hiscock, whose house lies directly inthe path of the access route to Barber Street.

Mrs Hiscock was suprised to hear the house she has lived in for 20 years was in the way of the route when it was announced as the preferred option in August.

On Friday, she was just as surprised to learn the route had been confirmed.

She has not yet been made an offer on her house by Roads and Maritime Services

She said she does not want to move.

“Money means nothing to me,” Mrs Hiscock said.

“I still feel that way, honest to goodness.

“I am 63 years old and I do not want to start all over again. I am comfortable here. I walk around and I know people here, I trust people here and I have friends here.”

Roads and Maritime Services left a message for Mrs Hiscock the afternoon before Friday’s announcement, asking her to call them. She said she wanted to continue to fight the acquisition of her home.

The Gunnedah overpass will be built to allow easier movement of traffic around Gunnedah as coal trains become longer and more frequent and mean faster times for emergency services vehicles.

Mr Gay said the Gunnedah overpass was part of the NSW government’s $290 million Bridges for the Bush program.

“The preferred option will provide an unrestricted higher mass limit (HML) route through the town and maintain access to the Barber Street business precinct through an upgrade intersection,” Mr Gay said.

The route chosen is west of the Gunnedah Maize Mill and will connect the Oxley Highway with a new roundabout at the intersection of Conadilly and Warrabungle streets.

Gunnedah Shire Council mayor Owen Hasler said today council supported the option and was “eager to see the concept turn into reality particularly given the increased rail traffic on the line due to greater coal production in the area”.

“Council applauds the state government and Road and Maritime Services on the extensive community consultation undertaken during the conceptual and planning phase of the project and are pleased that modified Option C has been identified as the preferred option for the overpass development

“This development brings with it many benefits for the community such as improved accessibility, improved safety and the opportunity for considerable economic benefits with the commercial redevelopment of the western end of Gunnedah.

“However, due to the extremely complex nature of the site I wish to also acknowledge that some residents will be negatively impacted by the development and this is indeed regrettable.”

Mr Anderson said the preferred option – Option C – had been refined to include access to Barber Street.

“I’m pleased the recommended Option C for the second overpass of the railway line at Gunnedah identified in August is now the preferred option,” he said.

“The new route will replace the New Street level crossing, which will be closed.”

Nungatta visit

Sunday, 1 July, 2018

THE Bombala and District Historical Society held its spring excursion to Nungatta, Nungatta South and Wangabelle on Saturday, November 15.
Nanjing Night Net

Around 60 people made their way to Nungatta for morning tea where the President, Stuart Hood welcomed all and gave the group a history of settlement in Nungatta.

Mr Hood explained that when W.T. Morris squattered on 100,000 acres in the area in 1836, they found the aborigines in the area were outcasts from other tribes and were not aggressive like some of the aborigines further south.

There were a succession of owners each lasting three or four years until Alexander Weatherhead bought Nungatta in 1854 for 800 pounds.

It was now much reduced, about 12,000 acres. He later wrote that he was very happy there, he could eat when he was hungry, sleep when he was tired and work for the rest of the time.

He raised his family there, farmed it successfully and when he died in 1901 he left an estate worth 40,000 pounds.

Hector McWilliam (of McWilliams Wines) bought it from the estate in 1914 and unsuccessfully tried to subdivide it into dairy farms. He then sold it in 1918 to Henry Phippard, a Sydney builder (with his brother, Ernest, they had built the Queen Victoria Building), and built a large homestead on Nungatta.

However his attempt to run pigs was a failure, and in 1923 sold it to Traralgon graziers, Dunbar, Dunbar and Napier, who were later joined by David Walker, father of Alan Walker of Palarang. They successfully raised cattle, droving them to Traralgon to fatten them.

In 1946 they sold Nungatta to the Osbornes from Bungendore who used managers to run sheep and cattle. Gil McIntosh and Paul Gimbert were two of the managers in recent times.

Paul recounted some of his memories of his time at Nungatta. In 2013 Ben Campbell bought part of the property while James Osborne retained the south western portion.

The group then went and inspected the Homestead, which has fallen into disrepair, but it was evident that it had been a magnificent house when it was built.

Next was the woolshed where Keith Brownlie and John Podger, who had worked there during shearing, recalled some interesting incidents that had occurred.

Following lunch the group went to the cemetery where Alexander Weatherhead, some of his family and some workmen were buried, before continuing to South Nungatta.

South Nungatta was split off Nungatta in 1907 and run by Charles McCoy. Between 1919 and 1970 the Browns owned it and since 1972 the Nungatta South Group has owned it. They are a Melbourne Group who want to run it as a Conservation Reserve.

The group then proceeded to Wangabelle where Dot de Geus gave the history of Wangabelle from a thriving dairy community with a school of over 100 pupils to the present time where there are about 15 beef cattle farms.

The group also looked at the cemetery where descendants of the original settler Captain Stevenson are buried. Captain Stevenson himself is buried in Rockton.

This was the conclusion of a very successful day.

Schoolies go for scenic alternative

Sunday, 1 July, 2018

Latrece De Thier of Logan, Elizabeth McNulty of Greenbank and Dale Sinkowski of Jimboomba enjoyed a peaceful Schoolies Week experience at Lake Moogerah.SCHOOL leavers are enjoying thepeace and quiet of the Scenic Rim as an alternative to the bright lights of Surfers Paradise for Schoolies Week.
Nanjing Night Net

Parklands Christian College graduates Latrece De Thier, Elizabeth McNulty, Dale Sinkowski and Josiah Gray have opted for a week of camping at Lake Moogerah to celebrate finishing year 12.

The group of friends, all 17, are swapping the popular Schoolies Week experience of alcohol and partying for waterskiing, mountain climbing, board games and football at Lake Moogerah.

Elizabeth said she and her friends decided to go camping at Lake Moogerah because they preferred the atmosphere there.

“It’s a lot more peaceful and it’s safer,” she said.

“It’s quiet here and it’s just easier to relax here with your best mates.”

Latrece said alcohol would not be a part of the group’s Schoolies experience.

“You just do stupid stuff when you have alcohol and we want to remember our time here,” she said.

Model T helps give Angel Flight wings

Saturday, 16 February, 2019

Angels come in all shapes and sizes, and Gunnedah had a visit from an unlikely angel in a T Model Ford on Friday.
Nanjing Night Net

Heading home: Lindsay Bell with his T Model Ford “Lizzy” stops over in Gunnedah.

Lindsay Bell, a Lion from Morayfield in Queensland and an Angel Flight Australia supporter, and his wife Valmay arrived in Gunnedah as one of the last stages in a great adventure that has taken them around Australia.

The Bells, along with three other vintage cars, took their 1923 T Model Ford “Lizzy” up across the top of Australia before coming back across the Nullabor.

Mr Bell said the 280km-a-day journey had brought with it some unexpected adventures.

“The spokes in the wheels are wood and they shrunk and came loose,” he said.

“We put all new tyres on when we left, but these aren’t modern tyres. We got to Perth and needed new tyres.”

Mr Bell, a former pilot, can no longer fly because of hearing loss, but has found ways to support Angel Flight from the ground, including this fund-raising adventure.

He has also assisted with about 160 Angel Flight missions, helping country people make it to medical facilities.

The Bells have done it tough in the heat, camping overnight and travelling without air-conditioning across the country.

They were looking forward to a return to Morayfield early this week.

“I am going to make myself a good cup of tea, sit down and enjoy watching the grass grow,” Mr Bell said.

“Lizzy” met with trouble when they got to Bathurst and is returning home on the back of a trailer, but Mr Bell said it wouldn’t be long before she was back on the road.

“She’s a great girl, we’ve had a lot of fun in her,” he said. “She is a most honest vehicle.”

The couple also have a 1912 T Model Ford at home that goes by the name of “Margaret”.

The Bells said they had met some wonderful people on their travels, including caravanners and Lions members.

The trip aimed at raising awareness of Angel Flight and funds to help the service.

THREE Pauls and a Jamie – it sounds like the start of a joke.

Paul Jones, Paul Turner, Paul Stares and Jamie Stokes guided Mittagong thirds to a comprehensive win over Bundanoon on Saturday.

Bundanoon captain Andrew Hore won the toss and elected to bat first.

Despite the best efforts of Hore and Neil Xavier (20 each), Bundanoon was eventually bundled out for 68 in the 16th over.

Stares led the Mittagong attack with 4/18 off six overs, while Jones took 4/14 from 3.3 overs.

The visitors had little trouble in reply, passing the total in 15.4 overs for the loss of just two wickets.

Turner top scored with 25no and received great support from Stokes (20no).

Mittagong captain Phil Aitkon praised his team for a great performance with the ball.

“We held our catches and then chased down the runs pretty easily.

“I’m a happy captain.”

Conversely, Hore said it was “one of those games you want to forget”.

“We were terrible with the bat.”

Cricket World Cup tours Port Augusta

Saturday, 16 February, 2019

TROPHY: Nitin Kharod and Rajinder Chauham were among the many people who were able to hold the International Cricket Trophy on Monday at ETSA Oval. Locals were given the chance to take a look and hold the International Cricket Council World Cup National Trophy this week, when the trophy tour stopped in town.
Nanjing Night Net

The tour coincided with the Lord Tavener’s Indigenous Cricket Carnival held on Sunday and Monday.

The six-team Twenty20 format carnival was headlined by under 23 Australian Indigenous cricketer and South Australian under 17 captain Ayden McGregor-Baptista.

Mr McGregor-Baptista said his first game was on Sunday against Port Augusta and played in Quorn.

“The facilities in Quorn were fantastic,” he said.

“The game was demanding but it was all good fun.”

At ETSA Oval on Monday, there were family friendly activities throughout the day with local schools and visiting schools having the opportunity to see the World Cup trophy.

With just under 80 days until the 2015 world cup, the tour is bringing awareness to the tournament as well as bringing the trophy to communities.

The tour will take three months and visit the seven host cities and finish on Australia Day in 2015.

Cricket World Cup community engagement manager Cameron McLeod said a family travelled 160 kilometres to Jamestown to see the trophy on Sunday.

The World Cup begins on February 14 with Australia taking on England at the Melbourne Cricket Ground and closer to home current champions India taking on Pakistan at the Adelaide Oval.

2014 Christmas Cup’s the wheel deal for Orange Cycle Club

Wednesday, 16 January, 2019

LEADERS: Ian Reed (third), Neil Yeo (first) and Murray Evans (second) took out the top three C grade spots in the Orange Cycle Club’s spring points series event on Saturday. Photo: CONTRIBUTEDTHE premier race event on the Orange Cycle Club calendar, the famous Christmas Cup, will be held on the Huntley Road course on Saturday, December 6.
Nanjing Night Net

This event attracts riders from around the state and will be a quick and exciting race. There is $4700 in prizemoney up for grabs and the chance to win a new bike valued at more than $1000.

For more information go to the club’s website at www.org.au.

The club held another race in the spring points series around the quick Huntley Road course last Saturday.

This was a graded scratch race with A and B grades combined, C grade by itself and D and E grades combined.

The riders had the advantage of a cross tailwind on the way to Aerodrome Road, however by the second lap the wind and heat had picked up making the run in from home nasty.

The riders in B grade played a smart game and didn’t expend too much energy before the final sprint, except for the ever youthful Mick Cain who, unsurprisingly, sacrificed himself.

Tristram Duncan took out the race and was first across the line in A grade.

Special mention must be made of David Coles who was racing in A grade but stopped to help young Max Stewart in B grade who had a mechanical problem towards the end of the first lap.

Tim Guy, who was clearly the strongest rider on the day, also dropped back to help, sacrificing what would have been an easy first place finish.

The average ride speed for the two laps of the 23km course was about 40 kilometres per hour.

Andrew Cummins and Phil Mooney came in second and third respectively.

The C grade bunch splintered on the second lap allowing Neil Yeo, Murray Evans and Ian Reed to take out first, second and third places respectively.

Jeff “Panda” Ferguson lost one of his overshoe covers that obviously cost him several kilometres per hour, which is why he didn’t figure on the podium.

D/E grade was won by Ivan Podres, with Tim Robinson second and Ivan Webb third – clearly age shall not weary them. Gina Browne hung on for a valiant fourth.

As always the club thanks the volunteers for all their work and effort. Without them there would be no racing.

This Saturday, the club will hold its biannual hill time trial, this time up the Pinnacle from Racecourse Road. It is sure to rip the legs off the most seasoned riders.

Community groups attend energy efficiency workshop.

Wednesday, 16 January, 2019

ENERGY: Several local community organisations were represented at an energy efficiency workshop put on by the National Energy Efficiency Network last Thursday. Not-for-profit community organisations have had the chance to learn more about energy efficiency and sustainability after a workshop was held in Port Augusta last Thursday.
Nanjing Night Net

The workshop was put on by the National Energy Efficiency Network (NEEN).

NEEN supports faith-based and not-for-profit organisations in meeting the challenge of a low carbon future by providing free access to energy efficiency information.

NEEN regional leader SA/NT Philippa Rowland said the local workshop was a success with a diverse group of people attending.

“Yes [it was a success], a great start to establishing NEEN in the region,” she said.

“10 [people turned up]; an excellent diverse group of people.”

Local community groups that were represented at the workshop included: Wami Kata Aboriginal Aged Care, Sisters of Mercy, Centacare, St Augustine’s Anglican Church, Port Augusta Golf Club, Port Augusta Bowling Club and Repower Port Augusta.

Ms Rowland said all the organisations found the workshop useful.

“All are keen to take it further within their own organisations and homes, which will lead to some practical projects on the ground in Port Augusta,” she said.

Ms Rowland said NEEN was keen to run another workshop in Port Augusta and pointed to a possible return early next year.

Unity application to be delayed

Wednesday, 16 January, 2019

Following earlier plans to have the modification to the approval for the Dargues Gold Mine submitted prior to Christmas, Unity Mining has now said it will delay the application until early next year.
Nanjing Night Net

Unity says “As committed, further community engagement and information sessions will take place in both the Palerang and Eurobodalla shires in mid-December – further details on these sessions will be published shortly. Unity Mining will submit the modification once community consultations have concluded.”

Unity Mining Limited announced on 11th November that it is seeking a modification to the existing planning approval to advance the development of its $250 million Dargues Gold Mine at Majors Creek. Unity says “ The proposed modification includes four elements: Changing the location (within the site) of the surface waste rock emplacement to make it simpler to construct the Tailings Storage Facility, and to reduce visual impacts from Majors Creek.

Constructing a more direct access road to the Tailings Storage Facility and the relocated surface waste rock emplacement area, across Spring Creek. .

Modifying the plant design to enable final gold processing utilising cyanide to occur on site, providing a safer and more cost effective solution for the project and removing some 2,200 annual truck movements from the local road network.”

The proposed use of cyanide and processing onsite has caused alarm in the community after being earlier assured that no processing would ever be done onsite.

Unity is also wanting to extend the timeframe of the project to 6 years “reflect the delay in commencement of the mine operation, and increasing the maximum amount of ore that may be extracted and processed to align with the known Dargues ore resources.”

Activation of the gold mine will generate employment, training and education in the local area with about 100 jobs during construction and 120 residential jobs during operation of the mine.

Unity says that forecast NSW royalties of about $10 million will be payable over the current project life.

As a State Significant Development, any modifications will be sent to the Department of Planning. Last week Minister for Planning Pru Goward announced a suite of improvements to how state significant development proposals are processed, “speeding up the State’s

planning system and providing more certainty to communities and business.”

Ms Goward said it was in the interest of communities and industry to have a planning

system which assesses and determines applications efficiently.

Ms Goward said “We expect councils to assess development applications without delay, so we should hold ourselves to the same standards. The Government’s commitment is to reduce

the average time it takes to process state significant developments like manufacturing plants and mines by up to 170 days. These large and complex applications often require expert advice from government agencies other than the Department of Planning and Environment and this can add time to assessments.”

Ms Goward added “Importantly, opportunities for the community to have its say on developments will not change.”

The reforms include:

 Introducing clear timeframes for the PAC and other NSW Government assessment processes and clear accountability for meeting those timeframes;

 Appointing case managers from the Department of Premier and Cabinet to manage planning applications through complex government processes and be accountable to a Cabinet committee for delivering outcomes on time;

 Establishing a whole-of-government approach to assessing state significant mining applications to make sure that agencies responsible provide timely advice and feedback;

 Setting up a panel of independent experts who will advise the NSW Government and the PAC on technical issues;

 Giving clearer guidance to the Planning Assessment Commission (PAC) on the application of government policies;

 Engaging better with communities affected by mining proposal by providing clearer information and more opportunities for community questions to be answered; and

 Appointing additional compliance officers in regional areas and ensuring conditions are being adhered to.

Ms Goward said the reforms would be implemented over the coming weeks and months to ensure certainty for both communities and industry across the state, who depend on a robust and efficient planning system.
