FixWestConnex – Sydney we can do better
October 11, 2017, 7:00pm - October 11, 2017, 7:15pm
At this public meeting hear Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore and SMH columnist Elizabeth Farrelly explain how the NSW Government’s WestConnex project will have huge impacts on taxpayers, road toll payers, commuters and local communities right across Sydney.
WestConnex is Australia’s most expensive road project ever and costs will keep rising to a staggering $50 billion.
Residents, community groups, local councils and industry organisations are up in arms over this network of private toll roads that will only support 2% of daily trips in Sydney.
The WestConnex M4:M5 Link Environmental Impact Statement is currently out for public comment. But it is based on concept designs, does not specify the volume of traffic in any useful way or justify the impacts on connecting roads that will be inundated with vehicles, noise and emissions.
The Premier needs to hit pause on her WestConnex project and fix the many problems that will destroy community life, the environment and cause traffic chaos on local roads connecting to WestConnex.
Westconnex is not a done deal – yet. Your voice matters.
Welcome & introduction:
Sydney Lord Mayor Clover Moore
SMH columnist Elizabeth Farrelly
Professor Peter Newman, transport & planning infrastructure expert
Professor Paul Torzillo, respiratory health specialist
Presented by the City of Sydney.
