WINDSOR BRIDGE REPORT

August 22, 2018

WINDSOR BRIDGE REPORT

Federal Member for Macquarie, Susan Templeman, said the report’s finding show the NSW Government had made its mind up about the removing of Windsor Bridge from the start.

“In some ways this inquiry report raises as many questions at it answers,” Ms Templeman said.

“The Inquiry’s finding that the options presented to the community for consultation presumed a preference for a replacement of the existing bridge shows there was something motivating the NSW Government that we still don’t really have the truth about,” she said.

“They’ve found that there was no comprehensive independent assessment, no consideration of alternatives, and there are concerns about there being no real improvement in traffic, which makes this project look like a giant waste of $100 million,” Ms Templeman said.

“I fully support NSW Labor’s calls to halt the work on the bridge.”
