Join us for a forum with experts, community members and local activists to find out how the North East Link will affect you.
Did you know that $16 billion (of taxpayer money) is about to be wasted on a major toll road that Melbourne doesn’t even need?Covid-19 has changed the way we live and commute. This gives us an opportunity to think of ways to enrich our local communities rather than destroy them.
Local areas need to be protected and enjoyed, not trashed by toll roads.This monster road is set to cut through communities, bulldoze 26,000+ trees, increase noise and air pollution, render homes unliveable, and destroy habitat for native animals.
Now more than ever, we know that open space, parkland, and clean air is imperative to the health and wellbeing of people.Join us for a panel discussion followed by a Q&A to find out how this project will affect you and how you can get involved to push back.
