NEWCASTLE Lord Mayoral candidate JEFF MCCLOY has put forward a plan to beautify the city’s industrial front with a 20 metre high bamboo hedge.
The proposal covers a stretch of Cormorant Road beside the KOORAGANG coal mounds, and could also offer some protection against coal dust.

However, both Port Waratah Coal Services and the Newcastle Coal Infrastructure Group say they already have a long term landscaping plan which will provide effective screening.
