Wednesday, September 13, 2017

Greens MP and Transport Spokesperson, Dr Mehreen Faruqi MLC, has responded to the Environmental Impact Statement for the Sydenham to Bankstown phase of the Sydney Metro project.

Dr Faruqi said:            

“A perfectly functional train line will be snatched away from the community, leaving them without a train service for months on end, all just for the sake of privatisation.

“This is not only poor planning, but a complete waste of money that should instead be spent on expanding the rail network to underserved areas.
