Submission for: Beaches Link and Gore Hill Freeway Connection
Northern Suburbs Netball Association
WILLOUGHBY, New South Wales
We do not support the construction of the Beaches Link Tunnel. We feel a better solution could be found that has far less environmental impact. Points of concern are the destruction of bushland; the loss of habitat for vulnerable species; and contamination risks from disturbing the old tip at Flat Rock Gully. Other issues for concern include noise and vibration, airborne contaminants, emissions from ventilation stacks, potentially contaminated land as well as biodiversity and habitat loss. Marine life is also under threat due to sludge in Sydney Harbour that contains alarming levels of toxins would be dug up during construction.
We are fully against this project and do not feel it's in the best interests of our community.
