  • Council endorses submission on the New M5 WestConnex EIS

    about 3 years ago

    Council considered and endorsed Marrickville's submission on the New M5 WestConnex EIS at its meeting on 16 February 2016. The submission reaffirms Council’s opposition to the New M5 and all stages of WestConnex, identifying the project as an outdated solution to Sydney’s transport needs that will entrench car dependency, divert considerable funds from essential public transport and undermine liveability.
