Tracks access promise

Meeting. Labor Candidate for Braddon Justine Keay has announced that within the first three months of her being elected she would convene a meeting between all relevant stakeholders to commence work on a lasting solution for access to west coast tracks.

“I have met with the Circular Head Aboriginal Corporation and far north-west coast residents and it is clear from speaking to both groups that they have a desire to see the area protected, preserved and accessed in a sustainable and responsible way so everyone can appreciate what a spectacular and significant part of Tasmania it is,” Ms Keay said on Friday.

“I believe that shared value should be the starting point for future discussions.

“I’m committed to showing leadership in resolving this issue if I have the privilege to serve in Braddon.

“I will work with the community and not be confrontational or inflammatory,” Ms Keay said.

In February, the Federal Court ruled against the reopening of four-wheel drive tracks on the west coast to protect Aboriginal heritage sites.
