ABC Online: Fix NSW Transport
About 1,000 people from 30 action groups have joined forces and protested through Sydney CBD calling for the Government to fix NSW roads and transport.
United in their anger, unions and local community groups mobilised to protest against ongoing problems with the rail system, the privatisation of buses and the Government’s major projects like the Sydney Metro, WestConnex, the F6 toll road and the Western Harbour Tunnel.
As the rally wound its way through the streets and entered Martin Place, protestors were asked to bunch up, just as they would on an overcrowded train.
Mary Court, secretary of Penrith Valley Community Unions, said private toll road building is “sucking billions” out of public transport and warned Premier Gladys Berejiklian not to “mess with the west”.
“Shame, Gladys, shame,” she said.
