After months – or is it years?! – of calling for the NSW Government to release the WestConnex Environmental Impact statement, we finally have some movement.
Today in parliament, the Minister for Planning announced that the environmental impact statement for the M4 East section of this polluting tollway will be on public display from tomorrow - September 9.
Will you pledge now to make a submission – and make your objection to this environmental and community destruction heard?
You will be able to view the EIS online (only active from tomorrow) and at 14 council and State Government offices from Strathfield to the city*.
This multi-billion road is an environmentally catastrophic project that will carve two 5.5 kilometre long tunnels under our communities, result in polluting stacks being put near our schools and green spaces, and in the long term do nothing to solve Sydney’s congestion crisis.
We’ve got 45 days to make our voice heard – pledge to make a submission now
Let’s stop this madness!
