WestConnex: Greiner’s folly, Part 2: South-west: the problem & the solutions

  • by

Nick Greiner’s WestConnex proposal would cost at least $15 billion and take more than a decade to complete. In this video series EcoTransit Sydney will show that that would be time and money tragically wasted.

Part 2 looks at the southern (or M5) axis of WestConnex. We demonstrate that the problem lies in the fact that public transport access from Sydney’s south-west and inner west to the Southern Industrial Area and the Randwick education and health complex is so bad that 90 per cent plus of commuters are virtually forced to drive. This is in sharp contrast to the CBD where 90 per cent plus of commuters from the same areas use public transport.

EcoTransit Sydney advances four projects that would cut tens of thousands of cars from the M5, the Princes Highway and local roads for an eighth of the cost of the southern arm of WestConnex.
