Love Glebe? Worried about Westconnex building a freeway on Ross St

Love Glebe? Worried about Westconnex building a freeway on Ross St

Dear Premier

WestConnex Stage 3 plans to build an off ramp and exit along Ross St in Glebe. We know there is no government financing for Stage 3 and the intention is to build it entirely with private sector funding. We think the plan will be a disaster for our suburb, and for the city. We ask you to stop stage 3 of WestConnex. If you want to improve transport in the city - we need more investment in public transport not more roads.

Why is this important?

We are parents, families, kids and community members. Our kids go to the local schools in Forest Lodge and Glebe and we are very concerned that WestConnex Stage 3 plans to build an off ramp and exit somewhere near Ross St in Glebe. WestConnex will bring over 33000 more cars to Ross St, dumping them in the Glebe area. We love Glebe. We want to protect it from a freeway that would cut the suburb in half and drench the community with fumes and pollution.


Reasons for signing

  • I signed because the Government has washed their hands by withdrawing funding, however, private sector is tied in with govt. and this will go ahead if we don't do something. Think Cancer, no schooling, ghettos and pollution.
  • My name is Daniel Mcintyre. I was recently on ABC News - http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-09-01/asbestos-claims-calls-for-urgent-testing-westconnex/7806636 after losing my job for raising my concerns that my employer (Moits) was supplying hundreds of thousands of asbestos contaminated materials to be used for the WestConnex.
  • I have spent my younger years growing up around the streets of glebe. I love this area and enjoy going with other friends and family
