UPDATE: Byron United has cancelled the planned rally.
Two events over the next few weeks will focus on Byron Shire Council’s efforts to repair one of the busiest tourist roads and walkways in the country, Lighthouse Road, which leads to the iconic Cape Byron.
The council will hold a public meeting on Tuesday, June 17, at the Byron Bay Surf Club, commencing at 5pm, to discuss the status of the Lighthouse Road repairs and boardwalk reinstatement.
And on Saturday June 28, Byron United will organise a rally marking the third anniversary of the road’s closure.
Lighthouse Road has been one-way traffic only since heavy rains caused a land slip.
