    WestConnex Update Feb 2017

    What a week it has been for WestConnex – with the release of a damning report by the National Auditor General, the arrival of the Minister for WestConnex in the NSW Parliament, and Labor supporting a Greens motion in the Senate condemning the Federal Government for lack of governance in expending federal funds for the project. Meanwhile on the ground the cowboys at the Sydney Motorway Corporation continue to bulldoze through without any regard for safety or compliance. If there was ever a time to step up our efforts to stop this private polluting tollway from destroying our neighbourhoods, polluting our air and slugging us with exorbitant tolls it is NOW. Here’s three things you can do right now to support the ever-growing community campaign against WestConnex: Contact the new Minister for WestConnex.  We have written to the Minister raising serious concerns about the safety and compliance breaches. Make sure the Minister knows about the serious safety concerns, which he is now responsible for – sign your name to the letter here or call his office on 8574 6500. Read and share the Greens motion, supported by Labor, which passed in the Senate this week. Following the damning report for the National Auditor General Greens Senator Lee Rhiannon moved a motion condemning the Government. You can read more about this and the report here – and be sure to share it with your friends so more people know about it.  Support the ever-growing local community campaigns. Inspiring community activists, concerned residents and local businesses are at the centre of the action standing up against the destructive WestConnex. Take a minute to connect with a campaign group - and if you can offer some support.

    The Australian National Audit Office has released its report into Commonwealth funding of the WestConnex project. The report looks into whether appropriate steps were taken to protect the Commonwealth’s interests and obtain value for money in relation to the $3.5 billion in Commonwealth funding committed to WestConnex.  “The report shows that the rationale for funding this project was deeply deficient. It points the finger at both the Liberal Coalition and Labor, because they were pushing the WestConnex project well before even an initial business case was presented to the appropriate government departments," says Ms Leong.
