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.

o Trucks full of spoil travelling along the school boundary (and our streets) every five minutes will be detrimental to the children’s safety, health and ability to concentrate on their studies.
o The spoil’s dust and exhaust fumes will spread across the school’s buildings, playground and oval.
o The noise pollution will be stressful and make learning difficult.
o The level of danger for children will increase with the number of trucks in the vicinity.
o The school has only one green recreational area: the oval. With the excavation site bordering it, the students have nowhere to play for the next four years.
o The traffic gridlocks and parking problems will add to the chaos that we already suffer through insufficient public transport, and particularly outside a school will increase the danger of accidents.
I would like to know how the Government believes any of the above can be a good thing.
I strongly feel that it is an insBecause it has been so date secretive oabout the inner west portions route, – Leichhardt/Lilyfield tunnel location, I am very strongly opposed to it. The drilling rig appeared outfront of my home in Catherine street a few weeks ago and this was my only reference that the tunnel will probably be directly under my property. Do I want this ABSOLUTLY NOT!
