SPC Ardmona’s plans to upgrade the facility were contingent upon securing sole access to the road.
The decision follows a strong community campaign to keep Andrew Fairley Ave open.

‘‘Today’s decision means the original investment plan will now be halted,’’ SPC Ardmona managing director Peter Kelly told The News at last night’s council meeting.
