Plan for Aboriginal road name
TWEED Shire Council has proposed a permanent name that pays homage to indigenous culture for the newly formed Piggabeen bypass road.
Council has proposed to keep the name Tulgi Way, which is pronounced ‘Tul-gai’.
The name will not affect any residential addresses.
The Aboriginal Advisory Committee, after consultation with the local Aboriginal community, proposed the name in recognition of the traditional people and the cultural signifi- cance of the area.
Tulgi is derived from the name Tul-gi-gin, which is the name for the traditional Aboriginal people who lived along the north section of the Tweed River.
Tweed residents are allowed to lodge a written objection against the name.
All objections should contain a clear explanation and be directed to the Tweed Shire Council.
