Member for The Entrance, David Mehan, says he welcomes the response from Central Coast Council to install wildlife warning signage on the Pacific Highway at Kangy Angy.
This follows reports from residents that two young wombats died early last month after being struck by motor vehicles between Burns Rd and Tuggerah Rd.
“There is a known wombat population on the west side of the M1 Motorway and these recent fatalities indicate movement of the population now on the east side,” Mr Mehan said.
“The presence of these fatalities at this location shows that signage is clearly warranted.
“Our region has an abundance of amazing wildlife which we are very fortunate to live in and around.
“To protect our wildlife, I encourage everybody to watch for signage and drive aware.” he said.
