The Herald Great Cover Up campaign

Introduce mandatory coal wagon covers.

Why is this important?

Register your support to have the Hunter’s coal train wagons covered by signing our Great Cover Up online petition today.
The Newcastle Herald has launched the Great Cover Up campaign in response to community concerns regarding the impacts of coal dust emissions.
The level of particulate matter generated by Hunter coal trains is presently under investigation.
International studies have confirmed coal dust can potentially harm human health.


Reasons for signing

  • We shouldn't have to breathe the dirt
  • Health - air quality in particular. Fed up cleaning the dust.
  • This is an easy way to have a significant health impact on those near those train lines.
