PDF: Birdwood Park: A Report on the Proposed Construction of State Highway 10A Through Birdwood Park, Newcastle – 1971

This report is concerned with the proposed construction of a highway (state highway 10A) through Birdwood Park, Newcastle. It supplements an earlier report published by the Norther Parks and Playgrounds movement (The King Street Highway: State Highway 10A: A Preliminary Report, 1968)

This report attempts to emphasise that the construction of a highway through Birdwood Park should be looked at, not as an isolated phenomena, but as an unfortunate illustration of a typical pattern of urban development and a prevailing attitude of mind.

The report has been complied by Mr. J. Pullen, Lecturer in the Department of Adult Education, University of Sydney (Newcastle) on behalf of the Northern Parks and Playgrounds Movement.
