HALT and Parliamentary Inquiry

Petition to call for a HALT to WestConnex and a full parliamentary inquiry

UPDATE: FIRST SUCCESS!

We have been successful in getting the parliamentary inquiry into WestCONnex. Now we need to see a HALT to the project.

THIS PETITION IS STILL OPEN - we maintain the demand for a HALT to westCONnex.


This Petition brings to the attention of the Government of NSW the risk of proceeding with the $17 billion WestConnex toll road when the community consultation process has been inadequate; transport planners and financial analysts alike increasingly condemn the project as incapable of addressing Sydney's transport problems; and Australian and international research indicates WestConnex will fail to deliver the benefits or revenues promised.

WestConnex will irreparably damage thriving inner-city communities; subject densely populated areas to increases in deadly air pollution; force scores of families out of their homes and businesses; impose unaffordable tolls on commuters from Western Sydney and expose New South Wales taxpayers to huge financial risk and ongoing costs when the toll road fails.

The undersigned petitioners ask the NSW Government to:

  1. Halt the tender and construction processes for WestConnex – including the acquisition of homes and businesses for all stages of the project; and

  2. Conduct a full parliamentary inquiry into WestConnex
