No WestConnex mid-point tunnel site in Leichhardt
Sign our letter telling the Minister for WestConnex we don't want a damaging and dangerous tunnel site in Leichhardt.
For more details about the proposed mid point tunnel site, please go to http://www.jamieparker.org/tunnel.
As a member of the local community I believe that the previously proposed Darley Road site is patently unacceptable as a mid point tunnel location for WestConnex.
This mid point tunnel excavation site will remain for up to four years, with significant traffic and safety impacts both on residents and people across the inner west region.
Residents of Leichhardt do not want a drill site. We are highly concerned about the traffic and safety impacts both on local residents and people across the Inner West region. We therefore call on you to cancel any plans to drill at the Darley Road site in Leichhardt.
This is yet another example of the kind of planning on the run which has been characteristic of the flawed WestConnex project since the start, and one more reason why it should be abandoned.

It’s the same old story after the horse has bolted
• Cause dust and constant noise pollution around the school, on the oval and in the school buildings and the quadrangle
• Create safety issues with the masses of daily truck movements. Already the hundreds of children arriving and leaving the school are vulnerable on those narrow footpaths besides busy roads to accidents with cars – they don’t need the extra hazards of trucks.
• Rob our students of proper use of their ONLY oval which will border the excavation site
• Rob the local community of use of this same oval
