The western gateway to the Wolli Creek bushland could be destroyed by WestConnex. So join us this Saturday 14 March at 3:30pm (sharp) and add your voice to the protest. It’s only for half an hour but it could have a big impact. Bring your family and fiends. Make a poster. Be colourful. Be there. See the attached flyer for more details and please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are coming.
More and more people are becoming aware that WestConnex is a terrible idea. As Gavin Gatenby of EcoTransit Sydney says, it is crazy policy to spend $15 billion on a massive tollway system for a handful of peak-period motorists. “Commuters are turning to public transport in unprecedented numbers and our rail system is bursting at the seams in the peaks. For a fraction of the cost of WestConnex we could build a public transport and freight rail system that would cause a dramatic fall in road traffic.”
As well, WestConnex threatens to destroy two hectares of high quality bushland at the western end of the Wolli Creek valley – bushland that should have been included within the Wolli Creek Regional Park except the RTA/RMS withheld it for its own purposes. We need to make it clear that the community opposes this development. See you on Saturday 14 March at 3:30pm.
