M12 COMMUNITY PETITION LAUNCHED

Anne Stanley MP, Federal Member for Werriwa, has launched a community petition calling on NSW Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) to revise its plans for the M12 Motorway at Cecil Hills.

Plans released by the RMS late last year have proposed a south-bound off-ramp above and across the ridgeline at Cecil Hills for traffic going from the new M12 to the M7.

The proposed south-bound off-ramp will significantly increase the noise and light pollution for residents in the Cecil Hills area once complete, on top of construction noise and inconvenience.

Launching the petition with Liverpool City Councillor Nathan Hagarty, Ms Stanley called on the RMS to seriously rethink the proposal.

"I am concerned about the impact of increased noise and light pollution on the residents of Cecil Hills,” Ms Stanley said.

“I encourage everyone to sign and share the petition, so RMS knows this is not acceptable to the community,” Ms Stanley said.

"The current plans are unacceptable, unfair and must be changed" Councillor Nathan Hagarty said.

“Not only will the community lose a beautiful part of Western Sydney Parklands, but local residents will have to put up with noise at all hours of the day and night”.

The petition is available to sign at https://annestanley.com.au/m12
