• The M5 East Green Link should be necesasrily included in the delivery of WestConnex

    Call for M5 East Green Link

    Thursday, January 28, 2016

    The ill-conceived WestConnex project has the obligation to improve walking and cycling in Sydney.  Despite being the NSW Government’s biggest enabling infrastructure project, it will bring no material cycling outcomes.  We’re calling on all Sydney riders (and walkers) to make a submission to the WestConnex EIS consultation to ensure that WestConnex delivers the M5 East Green Link – […]

Located just 3.5km from the city centre and 4km from the airport, the precinct is expected to attract 54,000 new residents and 20,000 […]
