Should we be checking out what Clover Moore suggests we do about the WestConnex? Or is it all good here in Eastern Sydney?

One recent Southern Courier facebook comment warns of the “…impending doom caused by the Light Fail…” (Southern Courier, 20-6-2017, “Infamous Nine Ways is no more”)

Light rail in Barcelona. But can it work in Kingsford, Sydney? Why not? source Flicker.

Someone else sent me a photo of a working light rail in Barcelona. I checked via Google Earth and Barcelona still seems to be functioning.

I find it frustrating that so much local fear and loathing is levelled at the CSELR as a non-car solution to road congestion but seemingly none at the coming impact of the WestConnex motorway. The St Peter’s interchange for this god-awful project must push more rat running car drivers through Kensington and Kingsford when completed.

Next Tuesday night I am putting a motion to Randwick Council calling for Clover Moore’s alternative solution for neutralising the ‘impending doom’ barrelling out of St Peter’s towards us.

I don’t know if I fully agree with Clover’s suggestions for alternative tunnel works and such, but I think that there should at least be some local debate on them.

And I am sure that replacing the Nine-Ways roundabout with traffic lights must be done. One-way or another (pun), CSELR or Westconnex, it is now obsolete.
