Balmain & Rozelle under threat from WCX!

From latest collaborative map. Blue circle = potential construction area. Yellow swoosh = potential tunnel zone.

How are you enjoying the ‘collaboration’ so far? Let them know this evening 4pm – 7pm Balmain Town Hall.

TAKE ACTION NOW – WCX Stage 3 hasn’t been approved and can be stopped! 

What will WestConnex mean for our local community?

  • Increased cancers, lung & respiratory disease, cardio problems & many other serious health issues due to massive amounts of concentrated pollutants coming from the four huge new unfiltered exhaust stacks
  • School children put at risk from highly carcinogenic small-particle pollution that is absorbed directly into the blood stream via the lungs
  • Gridlocks – massive bottlenecks of traffic at the Iron Cove Bridge, City West Link & Anzac Bridge
  • Additional traffic on our local streets as toll avoiders use local streets as rat runs

The Real Story

  • WestConnex is a waste of taxpayers’ money. $17 billion spent so far and the new cost projection is $45 billion. This is money that should be going to public transport, education and hospitals
  • WestConnex won’t get you anywhere faster. Roads act as car magnets. An integrated public transport system frees up roads as commuters have more options.
  • The NSW government can’t fund it and is trying to sell it off. New owners will get to decide on toll increases
  • The NSW government already subsidises current toll road operators to the tune of $100 million per year. WestConnex contracts would almost certainly follow this model
