The Western Harbour and Beaches Link projects are the largest construction projects  to  ever hit the North Shore and our concerns have been confirmed by the first EIS released on 29th January and closed on 30th March 2020.

The formal submission stage is closed but you can still submit a late entry to : naomi.moss@planning.nsw.gov.au

 

We're all on the same team and we know the current tunnel plans don't make sense, won't solve congestion and aren't fair.  It's all pain, no gain. If you want more sustainable transport options not toxic toll roads, if you are concerned about impacts on environment, climate, property, amenity and community make your voice heard and act today.

We can't do this without you!

Here are the Links to what the Government has published:

Explore the full EIS (Go to EIS 73)). Any other documents are NOT the EIS but marketing documents published by the proponent (Transport for NSW/  RMS). The EIS documents the final plans and impacts

View the Warringah Traffic Flow Map to see how traffic changes will impact you. This is a picture of the proposed traffic changes to the Freeway - it's huge!

Our Analysis of the Final Plans and Key Impacts:

The EIS is a huge document around 9000 pages long so we have analysed key issues for you. Choose examples from the ideas docs which resonate with you and make it personal: perhaps you walk the dog in an impacted park or you are  an asthmatic concerned about stacks?

Each submission needs to be different as the DPIE counts form letters as one submission. Use the template below and put it in your own words as much as possible. Delete the highlighted yellow section and select a couple (or all) of the examples from the Ideas documents

Save your submission and send it to decision makers like your local MP, local council, the Chief Health Officer and the Chief Scientific Officer

We recently submitted a hand written petition to Parliament for debate (30th July). We are now running an online change.org petition to continue to raise awareness and ask decision makers to invest in projects that will help those most vulnerable across NSW. Sydney does not need more toxic toll roads!

Please email it around, share it on social media as much as possible in both city and country areas. These projects are a huge waste of investment that could be used to stimulate our economy and provide for a prosperous future for all.

Update: Formal submissions are now closed however the Department of Planning are still accepting responses - the Beaches Link EIS is expected out around July/August
