Federal Audit for Westconnex

westconnex modelCongratulations to the thousands of community campaigners standing up to the Baird Government on the destructive Westconnex motorway. The forthcoming audit of the project by the Australian National Audit Office is a solid victory in this ongoing campaign.

The Federal Auditor General will examine the use of the $3.5 Billion in federal funds that has been committed to the project. This investigation presents a real opportunity for our community campaign. This project should never have come this far without proper scruitiny. The Greens are calling on the project to be stopped until the audit is completed. As I write, local residents are having their homes forcibly acquired to create space for this motorway, reportedly destroying heritage items as they go.
