    Residents Demand End to 'Fake' Approval Process

    COALITION AGAINST WESTCONNEX Media Release - 15/12/2017 12.20 pm RESIDENTS DEMAND END TO ‘FAKE’ APPROVAL PROCESS. Anti Westconnex campaigners today occupied the NSW Department of Planning in Pitt Street, Sydney, calling for NSW Planning to reject the Environmental Impact Statement for the Stage 3 Westconnex tollway between St Peters, Haberfield and Rozelle and for an end to ‘fake’ approval processes. “The community is sick of being pushed aside while decisions driven by the road lobby are being made behind closed doors,” said Paul Jeffery spokesperson for the Coalition against WestConnex, a network of anti-WestConnex community groups involved in today’s protest. A chanting chorus of activists in 'faceless' masks (stamped REJECT EIS!) and a trio of White Elephants demanded an end to Gladys' FAKE approval process. NSW Planning received more than 12,000 submissions, including submissions from City of Sydney and the Inner West Council, documenting hundreds of flaws in Sydney Motorway Corporation’s EIS. NSW government departments have also been strongly critical of the EIS which is based only on a concept not an actual design. (http://www.altmedia.net.au/epa-rejectswestconnex-eis/128946). “Despite the evidence, we’re worried that political pressure will be exerted to override expert concerns so that the Gladys Berejiklian government can move ahead with privatising WestConnex. The Stage 3 project would impose more intolerable impacts on residents and waste a further $7 billion on a solution that will worsen, not solve, traffic congestion.” “For Planning to approve an EIS based on a vague concept would show utter contempt for communities whose lives have been made intolerable by WestConnex projects, for the people of NSW who’d bear the cost and for the very idea of independent planning,“ said Paul Jeffery. Contact: Spokesperson for Coalition against WestConnex : Paul Jeffery 0410 636 663 The CAW network includes No WestConnex: Public Transport, Rozelle Against WestConnex, Westconnex Action Group, Leichhardt Against WestConnex, Save Newtown and other groups.

    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.
