“I am of the view that the EW Link project will not solve traffic and freight transport problems nor fix congestion; will vacuum up $8 billion of State funds which should be spent on public transport, in particular, rail projects; will devastate Royal Park, Travancore Park and the Moonee Ponds Creek; will impact on the Melbourne Zoo, the Royal Children’s Hospital, the State Netball and Hockey Centre and the Urban Camp; will obliterate whole neighbourhoods along its route, affect the amenity of the inner suburbs; and destroy heritage streetscapes”.
