Committee hearings into the disastrous Rozelle Interchange project begin this week


The NSW Upper House Committee Inquiry into the disastrous Rozelle Interchange project will commence hearings this week, with a public forum scheduled for tomorrow afternoon. This Inquiry was established and will be chaired by Greens MLC Cate Faehrmann.

Kobi Shetty MP says:

“This Inquiry is a welcome step after the continuing impacts of months of extensive delays and disruptions following the opening of the Rozelle Interchange. 

“We need this committee inquiry to get to the bottom of how they got the Rozelle Interchange so wrong, and what workable solutions can be put forward to fix this traffic disaster.

“It’s unreasonable for the government to expect our community to continue bearing the brunt of the traffic chaos, particularly after we’ve dealt with years of disruptions during the construction of WestConnex.  I hope to see strong findings and recommendations come from this Inquiry, that can be promptly implemented by the government.

 “Transport for NSW have done what they can to squeeze as much traffic as possible through a very constrained system, but it’s clear we need some more bold solutions and the political will to implement them.

 “I’ve heard from several locals who will be attending the public forum tomorrow. It’s so important that residents are given this opportunity to have their say and share directly with the Committee how the Rozelle Interchange has impacted them.

 “From young high school students forced to hop off buses and walk to school to avoid being late to emergency doctors unable to get to the hospital quickly enough in a critical situation – these are stories that need to be heard.



 The public forum is scheduled for 2:45 – 3:45pm on Wednesday the 10th of April. It will be held in NSW Parliament House.
