Local resident Gavin Gatenby from EcoTransit has made the first of a series of videos about WestConnex.  EcoTransit thinks WestConnex will be a waste of time & money, that is, if it ever gets built.  This is an intelligent video with seriously detailed information.

This video explains how per-capita vehicle use has fallen to the level of 20 years ago & total vehicle kilometres travelled have been virtually flatlining for nine years, while demand for public transport has surged beyond peak-period capacity.  In this situation it’s possible, with projects & policies far cheaper than WestConnex, to dramatically reduce road traffic & build a more liveable, sustainable, Sydney.
 
 Future installments will look at the project’s impacts, the politics & personalities & the alternatives.”

WestConnex will have a massive impact on Marrickville LGA so it is worth keeping alert to any discussion about it.  You can watch the video here – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xdvqt0ZsCvI&feature=youtu.be
