Murray Thompson MLA, State Liberal member for Sandringham, (centre) with the Treasurer (left) and President (right) of Beaumaris Conservation Society Inc, after a walk with them in November 2007 to inspect the roadside edge of the foreshore reserve.

 

That reserve, which is part of the Beaumaris Bay Fossil Site on the Register of the National Estate, is of national and international importance, but it is threatened with losing 90 trees or, far worse, its bisection, if VicRoads cannot meet Bayside Council's request for a short extension of nearby 2-lane safety section to give room on the Beach Road bitumen for the bicycle road extension.
