Anglesea roundabout gets a facelift

More than 90 eucalyptus and wattle trees have been planted on the Forest Road nature strip near the Anglesea/Winchelsea roundabout to offset the installation of the roundabout.

VicRoads, the Green Army, ANGAIR and GORCC are working together to restore vegetation in the area to provide habitat for local fauna.

ANGAIR member Bill McKellar said the work would not have been possible without the assistance and man power from the Green Army.

“Green Army is able to offer young, enthusiastic environmentalists who are able to do the work twice as fast, which helps ANGAIR conduct more conservation work across the Surf Coast,” he said.

The plants are designed to compliment the existing heathland vegetation across the road and are plants grown by the ANGAIR environmental group.

ANGAIR is a local environemtnal group dedicated to protecting local indigenous flora and fauna, and to maintain the natural beauty of Anglesea and Aireys Inlet.
