The Queanbeyan Conservation Alliance is a network of people living in the urban and rural areas of Queanbeyan City in the Southern Tablelands of New South Wales, Australia.
The Alliance was formed in May 2013 to campaign for the protection of Queanbeyan’s ecologically important areas including the Escarpment – part of a regionally significant wildlife corridor – and Queanbeyan River and its tributaries.
These important features of our environment are threatened by a proposal to build a high-speed road to accommodate growing vehicle traffic. This road project – the Ellerton Drive Extension – will harm our environment and wildlife. It will also be expensive and lock the city’s residents into car dependence for decades to come when we should be developing a better public transport system, integrated with the neighbouring Australian Capital Territory, and safer cycling facilities.
If you would like to join the Alliance or become involved in the campaign, email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
