Community action group RAID – Residents Against Intermodal Development – have arranged a public information night for residents tomorrow, February 15.
“There is confusion, anger and fear and it’s a real struggle to understand what’s going on,” RAID secretary Erik Rakowski said.
“It’s our belief this is deliberate. With each new tweak, modification or name-change for the many different parts of the project and without explanation or public meetings, barriers are created.
“Simply put, it’s not good enough. Our community has not been consulted, it’s been patronised.
“The focus of the meeting tomorrow night is to give some background on the project, to provide an update of where we are now and what we can all do next.
“For some it may be important just to understand what an intermodal container terminal is and what impacts we can expect from a duplication of Port Botany in a residential area on the Georges River.
“Part of the meeting will be devoted to Q&A so everyone is given the best chance to understand what’s going on. Every single voice matters – voices that can be the difference.
“In the words of Margaret Mead, never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
- 7pm to 9pm, tomorrow (February 15), at Moorebank Community Centre, corner Maddecks Avenue and Nuwarra Road. Details: Facebook.
