I was sent this email this morning…..thought it wise to share with fellow rioters:
My husband works for Harden Shire Council and was advised by the RTA that a very large convoy of trucks will be converging on Canberra on Monday 22 August for a blockade. He suggested I might pass this information on to you.
The trucks are coming from as far afield as Perth, Adelaide, Mt Isa and other points in between. At this stage the RTA do not know how many trucks will be involved but it is intended to be a blockade through the main streets of Canberra, converging on Parliament House. We will be having one convoy staying overnight in Harden – probably double Harden’s population!
There are a total of 9 convoys and below is some detail of the directions the trucks are coming from and the routes they will be taking:
|Departing from||Time||Route||Arriving Canberra|
|Hall||5.30am||Most direct route allowable through Civic centre of town||6.00am|
|Murrumbateman||5.45am||Gungahlin Dr/Tuggeranong Parkway/Cotter Rd/onto Adelaide Ave||6.45am|
|Yass||6.00am||Northbourne Ave/Majura Rd/ Morsehead/Kings Ave||7.15am|
|Goulburn||5.00am||Majura rd/Morsehead/Kings Ave||6.30am|
|Coolac||6.30am||Northbourne Ave/Majura Rd/ Morsehead/Kings ave||8.30am|
|Harden||6.00am||Gungahlin Dr/Tuggeranong Parkway/Cotter Rd/onto Adelaide ave||8.00am|
|Cooma||5.30||Johnson Dr/Drakeford Dr/Tuggeranong Pway/Cotter/Adelaide Ave||7.30am|
You might like to let your office colleagues know about this as it is going to stuff up the traffic big time and getting to work that morning could be very problematic.
This link was later sent to me which confirms the the email!
Batten down the hatches – they are coming to town and they are not happy!!
