A very successful community meeting on WestConnex organised at the Sydney University School of Nursing by Camperdown Residents Aware of WestConnex on April 2. Great selection of speakers: Jenny Leong, Greens MP for Newtown; Jozefa Sobski, resident of Haberfield where residents have been greatly impacted by the demolition, tunnelling and construction of WestConnex; Professor James Weirick, Director of the Master of Urban Development and Design (MUDD) program, Faculty of the Built Environment, UNSW; Christina Valentine, Co-Convenor Leichhardt against WestConnex (LAW).

Thank you for inviting us today Leichhardt High - and for your spirit and determination.
LAW welcomes the decision of the Minister in ruling out the offensive proposal to locate a dive site directly next to our local high school. Now our attention must turn to ensure the equally offensive Darley Rd site is ruled out.
The residents of Euston Road Alexandria are about to have all of the trees in front of their apartments removed. The beautiful old figs over the road will probably be destroyed as well.
We spent yesterday afternoon wrapping the trees in blue to show the potential destruction.
The action was organised by Save Sydney Park, Westconnex Action Group, and Save Newtown - Stop Westconnex.Read more
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. As was revealed in the Federal Audit released earlier this month, most of this money is still sitting unused in the state governments coffers. It's not too late to redirect this to money to public transport and solve, rather than exacerbate, Sydney's traffic woes.Read more

About 40 Rozelle residents occupied the Victoria Rd footbridge while clad in white paper overalls and face masks, alongside a few white elephants and a packet of "westCONnex unfiltered" to send the message to the Berejiklian government that we won't tolerate their assault on our community's health and wellbeing. The action, organised by Rozelle Against WestCONnex (RAW), drew attention to the health impacts caused by this destructive motorway.Read more

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.Read more
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!
If you listened only to the PR spin coming from the NSW Baird Government and their toll road construction arm,Sydney Motorway Corporation, you might be forgiven for thinking that the Rozelle WestConnex extension has already been approved.Read more
