Roads and public transport investment aren’t ‘either-or’ options. Roads, rail, light rail, ferries and buses are all part of the transport solution.
WestConnex is just one of more than 80 projects outlined in the NSW Long Term Transport Master Plan to address the state’s complex transport needs. It is a critical part of all of these integrated strategies to tackle congestion and increase productivity for a growing city.
Not all trips in Sydney can be undertaken by public transport. By 2036, more than 70 per cent of the proportion of increased travel demand in Sydney will be by car. By 2036, 45 per cent of public transport will be via bus services, which rely on the road network.
The NSW Government is investing $41.5 billion (2016–17 NSW Budget) in transport projects during the next four years. This includes both roads and public transport – upgrading the bus fleet, and building the CBD and South East Light Rail, Sydney Metro and Parramatta Light Rail.
For each WestConnex project, a series of documents including details of the measures to appropriately manage and reduce the impact of the project on local communities. These include:
- The Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) – the EIS explores the potential environmental impact and outlines measures to manage and reduce this impact based on best practice and expert advice.
- The Submissions Report – this responds to all feedback received on the EIS during exhibition. It provides additional mitigation measures needed in response to new information, additional assessment or community feedback.
- The Conditions of Approval – in approving each project, the NSW Minister for Planning issues a range of conditions that must be adhered to during and after construction, to ensure impact of the project is mitigated.
- The Construction Environmental Management Plan and sub plans – before we start major work, these are prepared to provide a detailed approach to the management of environmental issues. The Department of Planning and Environment must approve these before major construction work can start. They build on the mitigation and management measures established in the EIS, the Submissions Report and Conditions of Approval.
We always notify local communities before we start a new section of work and before we do any out-of-hours work.
