Late last year the government released alarming proposals to widen roads and intersections, and introduce clearways between Alexandria and Moore Park. Details are scarce but it looks like parts of Moore Park would be sacrificed for the project. The changes are to deal with expected new traffic spilling from the WestConnex St Peter’s Interchange, despite government promises that the local roads network would be able to cope.
It is unsustainable to continually expand road space and it only encourages private vehicle use, leading to more congestion. I asked the government to abandon proposals and work across roads, public transport, environment and planning agencies to address future congestion. My submission is HERE.
