The government has released the tunnel route for WestConnex Stage 3b, the Rozelle Interchange. They are proposing to build a monstrous spaghetti junction as shallow as 10m under the inner west.
Homes which sit within the identified ‘zone of influence’ of the tunnel in Leichhardt, Annandale, Lilyfield and Rozelle may be impacted.
I'm concerned that:
- The government will compulsorily acquire land beneath properties in the area without offering compensation or an appeals process;
- The shallow depth of tunnels increases the risk of serious, permanent damage to homes as well as ground noise and vibration; and
- The current proposal ignores the experience of residents in Strathfield who have seen huge cracks form through their homes as contractors burrow to build the M4 East.

On 2 November over 390 residents attended our public meeting at Leichhardt Town Hall. This turn out sends a clear message to the government that our community doesn't want this tollway!
