Whilst long overdue, some residents of Footscray have entered the truck debate. After speaking to members of MTAG who live in Footscray and Seddon, this is their response to the situation:
“(The people in Footscray) closely associate MTAG with Yarraville and are perhaps unsure about its motives when to them, it looks like through their successful lobbying, what was once Yarraville’s problem has now become ours.
People have told me that they want to do something at a local level. Being someone who is going to be greatly affected by the Ashley St/Ballarat Rd proposal, I know that more local people would be keen to sign my petition, than register with MTAG. At the end of the day, there is no harm done as we are all working toward the one goal and hopefully we will all enjoy success. The more signatures we have and the more submissions forwarded, the greater the likelihood that that will occur.”
