Jennifer Huppert, a Labor MLC for Southern Metropolitan Region (centre), with the Zone 1-2 Leader (at left) and the President (at right) of Beaumaris Conservation Society Inc, during a walk with them in May 2009 to inspect the roadside edge of the National Estate section of the Beaumaris 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, being bisected right along its length, if VicRoads cannot meet Bayside Council's request for a short extension of the nearby 2-lane safety section to give room on the Beach Road bitumen for the bicycle road extension.

 

Ms Huppert filled the casual vacancy produced by the resignation, in December 2008, of the former MLC, Mr Evan Thornley, who had earlier inspected the route with members of the BCS Inc. Management Committee.
