PROPOSAL: A sign showing the entry to Myuna Colliery in south-west Lake Macquarie. Mine owner Centennial Coal has proposed a modification to its existing approvals to transport coal by truck along Wangi Road. It wants to mix coal from its Myuna and Mandalong mines to improve quality.

Centennial Coal's plan to truck more than a million tonnes of coal per year along Wangi Road, which requires 62,500 truck movements, is a "ridiculous proposition" and would be a "disaster" waiting to happen, says Lake Macquarie MP Greg Piper.
