In Parliament, I called on the government to withdraw plans to expand roads and intersections between Alexandria and Moore Park (A2MP), proposed to deal with new traffic spilling into the streets from the WestConnex. When all associated road changes are factored in, WestConnex will cost a staggering $50 billion, when what we need and people want is more public transport options.Read more

While the government will fix the Sydney Harbour Bridge cycleway, the minister’s response to other needed city centre cycle routes is disappointing. The William/Park streets separated cycleway dangerously stops at Elizabeth Street, there is no easterly route from Darling Harbour along Druitt Street to Park Street and the main north-south Castlereagh Street cycleway ends at Liverpool Street.Read more
