THE NSW GOVERNMENT IS PLANNING TO BUILD THE F6 TOLL ROAD THROUGH THE ROYAL NATIONAL PARK OR THROUGH 400 HOMES.
wE SAY NO MORE DIRTY TOLL ROADS, INVEST IN PUBLIC TRANSPORT INSTEAD!
The NSW Liberal/National Government is planning to build the F6 toll road either through the Royal National Park or straight through more than 400 homes. It is unbelievable that in 2017, even this Liberal-National NSW Government who has shown little care for our environment, is seriously considering building a dirty toll road right through Australia’s oldest National Park.
The community love the Royal, it’s the second most visited National Park in NSW and they simply won’t accept this crazy plan just to satisfy this government’s insatiable appetite for toll roads.The Government is pitching a false dichotomy between building in a National Park and hundreds of people losing their homes. The reality is that the F6 will be a disaster either way. We know there is another way to improve people’s commute by upgrading the train line which is more effective, less destructive and cheaper.
We know that Transport for NSW was explicitly instructed by the Government to not look at rail options when considering the F6, and now we know what an environmental and community tragedy this motorway will be. These kinds of decisions really beg the question whose interests the Government has at heart, the community or the toll road lobby.
Sign the petition to say no to the F6, save the Royal National Park and people's homes, and yes to better public transport and upgrades on the Illawarra and South Coast Lines.
