Debate on highway postponed

60 Minutes has sadly had to postpone next week's debate on the state of the Pacific Highway.

The meeting due to be held at the Civic Centre in Grafton next Wednesday, August 11, between 6-8pm has now been delayed until after the Federal Election.

60 Minutes reporters have been given extra election commitments and as such will not be available to attend the meeting in Grafton.

60 Minutes remains committed to covering this story and the community debate following the Federal Election.

A new date for the debate will be announced for the Grafton meeting very soon – the meeting will be held at the Civic Centre in Grafton.

60 Minutes appreciates the coverage local media has given to the meeting and looks forward to working with them again once the new date for the meeting is announced.

60 Minutes apologise for this unavoidable delay and looks forward to holding the community debate and covering the story in the near future.
