Wolli bushland still under threat from New M5/Westconnex

On Sept. 7 (National Threatened Species Day!) and Sept. 8 2016, the Critically Endangered Cooks River Castlereagh Ironbark Forest bushland at Beverly Grove, Kingsgrove in the upper Wolli creek Valley was substantially destroyed for the New M5.

Now, on top of that destruction, it has come to light that despite Roads Minister Duncan Gay’s assurances in his press release in June 2015 that the Wolli creek bushland would not be impacted by the New M5, the RMS owned bushland at Bexley North, where the Two Valley Trail starts is still being considered for “future transport needs”.
