Alex's Update Issue 34

Oxford Street, Darling Harbour and Port Privatisation

Following our win to cut Oxford Street clearway start times from 3pm to 4pm on trial, bus lane signs were updated but not parking signs. In response to my request, the RMS will fix this anomaly to avoid confusion. The Minister also referred my request to reduce Oxford Street speed limits for consideration for possible review.

While I welcome changes to the proposed Darling Harbour redevelopment to scale back the Convention and Exhibition centres, proposals for eight residential and commercial towers in the Southern Haymarket Precinct haven’t changed, despite overshadowing and view impacts in Ultimo. My submission is available HERE.

I opposed sale of the Port of Newcastle when it was rammed through Parliament in the last sitting. Members were not given information about economic benefits of relinquishing the largest port in the world. During debate I raised concerns that privatisation could increase pressure to expand the port, driving coal expansion which impacts local communities and contributes to dangerous climate change. My speech is available HERE.

Have a great week
