The Greens strongly oppose WestConnex and the Western Harbour Tunnel this means:

  • Employment of top consultants to provide specialist advice on issues such as traffic modelling. Air pollution, tunnel engineering and an updated cost-benefit analysis.
  • Investigation of all potential legal challenges and monitored compliance.
  • All information immediately put in the public realm. No secrets.
  • Support for a council funded campaign against WestConnex.
  • Support for groups campaigning against WestConnex.
  • Strong advocacy against WestConnex and its impacts on the Inner West.
  • Protecting the health and well-being of inner West residents – no unfiltered pollution stacks, no WestConnex.

The Greens will strongly campaign for world-class public transport including:

  • A fully connected public transport network.
  • New light rail routes to Balmain, White Bay and Parramatta Road.
  • Accessible train stations.
  • More frequent buses and no privatisation of our buses.
  • Extend heavy rail, more frequent and better integrated services.
  • Stop the privatisation of the Bankstown train line.
  • No removal of rail tracks in the Rozelle Goods Yard or White Bay.
  • Expand and make safer cycleways and footpaths.
