    WestConnex’s collision course into communities

    Story by Patrick Overs  The production of the $17 billion motorway through Sydney has done a lot more than create one big construction site of a city.  As the motorway’s construction has become more potent, local communities and residents have been increasingly seriously affected. The Inner West suburb of Haberfield is known for its early 20th Century architecture and history. Despite this, large parts of the suburb are affected by WestConnex developments, as homes have been demolished to make way for construction.  Local resident Mr John Fletcher has lived in Haberfield for more than 20 years and has witnessed the effects of WestConnex on the suburb. “They closed Ramsey Street, which split the suburb in half for months. It made Haberfield particularly quiet, inconvenient, and really affected the local businesses.”  John Fletcher, of Haberfield … WestConnex will create, not solve, problems. Photo: Patrick Overs

    Media Release: No WestConnex Statement on the Resignation of Premier Baird

    No WestConnex: Public Transport welcomes the news that NSW Premier Mike Baird will resign from Parliament. His resignation shows the strength of the many grass-roots campaigners fighting against his government's destructive policies. These include forced council amalgamations, the backflip on the greyhound ban, senseless privatisations and of course the WestConnex private toll road, among many others.
