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

Dear Minister

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.

Yours sincerely,

    The surreptitious manner in which this project is being delivered beggars belief. If this was a private development, any changes to an agreed and transparent process would be shut down, why is this project being treated differently? You cannot have this drill site adjacent to a school, let alone in residential areas. The WestConnex team should be ashamed of themselves. So should the cowardly politicians who do not accept they have a social responsibility in the decisions they make and the people whose lives they affect.
