"Have to keep a watch out for them, will they be wearing funny hats and carrying clip boards or something? Typical, New crowd comes in and decides they had better see what they are going to affect."

"Hi Bob. Thanks for your follow-up here with the Community "Place Manager". It spurred me on to speak with Elle. Elle, btw, works for CPB, the contractors. She noted my concerns about being diverted to the busier cycling routes during/after…"

"Denise, FYI, what I just got back from the Westconnex “Place Manager” after calling them yesterday. Nothing new but they are offering to meet when th3 design is approved- a bit Late then probably! “Thank you for your time on the…"

"This shows the new road cutting across Buruwan Park and severing the path. But if the road was shifted a few metres to the NE and E there would be room for a path around to The Crescent, past the mural."

"RMS told me a year ago they would retain a path around the edge of the park, on the railway side, but I can’t confirm that is still the case. The proposed slip road curves around from The Crescent and there must be some room between the road…"

"Hi Mike. Buruwan Park is in Annandale, on the border of Glebe (the Crescent). Its proposed erasure is for a widened feeder road from City West Link + re-configured approach to Anzac Bridge... all to accommodate the gigantic Rozelle Interchange…"

Cycling route through Buruwan Park, Glebe, lost to WestConnex/RMS

I just learned that my favourite cycling/commuting route to the city through Buruwan Park (Crescent/City West Link Cnr) has been lost to WestConnex/RMS, and will close forever shortly. It was a particularly good route for slower cyclists who hated using the busy Lilyfield Rd. Please come this Sunday 10 March, 4-5pm, for a photo shoot to express your dissatisfaction with the loss of not only a quiet cycling route, but the loss of over 100 trees.…See More
