Blog: No Westconnex at March in March

A few shots of the stop #westCONnex contingent at March in March.

It was fitting to see Tony Abbott there. It was his decision to flush $3.5 billion of our money down the #westCONnex toilet bowl.

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.

Project Update: WestConnex Rozelle - it can be stopped!

Don’t believe the hype – Stage 3 of WestConnex, which includes the proposed Rozelle extension, has yet to be approved and it can be stopped!
