Anzac trees saved by $200,000 State offer

TOODYAY’S two threatened Anzac Memorial Park trees (pictured left during a 2016 public protest against their destruction) on the corner of Clinton Street and Anzac Parade appear to have been saved by a State-funded upgrade to four of five dangerous corners on the town’s temporary heavy-haulage bypass.

The Toodyay Shire Council voted 7-0 last month to accept a Main Roads WA offer of up to $200,000 to widen the four corners to enable heavy trucks and trailers to pass safely.
