New information shows that the Westconnex project will take even more of Sydney Park for new roads, with another 350 trees and 6,000m2 of land added to the 8,000m2 already allocated. While this is outside the Sydney electorate, WestConnex will have major traffic and amenity impacts across the inner city, which I raised in Parliament last year, read my speech HERE.
It will to require a massive community campaign to get changes that focus on much-needed public transport instead of bringing even more traffic into the city. The Westconnex community campaign groups are www.westconnexactiongroup.org.au and http://westconnex.info/.
