Filter the toxic Rozelle stacks

Everyone deserves clean and safe air to breathe. 

But despite world's best practice and mounting scientific evidence that transport pollution is extremely harmful to our health, the NSW Labor Government is continuing to drag its heels - further delaying action to filter the toxic Rozelle stacks. 

Last year I secured an independent review of the Chief Scientist and Engineer's findings on road tunnel air quality - an important first step towards getting the stacks filtered. But disappointingly, the NSW Labor government has now admitted to significant delays - pushing the release of the independent review back from March to September of this year. This delay is completely unacceptable.

The failure to deliver the review on time shows that the government is not treating this issue as a priority. We need to show them that we will not let them get away with ignoring our concerns.

Will you please join me in writing to the Minister for Roads, calling on them to urgently progress the review into road tunnel air pollution, and to filter the toxic Rozelle stacks.

We are calling on the Minister for Roads to:

  • Recognise the mounting scientific evidence that transport pollution is extremely harmful to our health
  • Acknowledge the valid concerns of residents about the potential health and environmental impacts from the unfiltered WestConnex stacks
  • Provide funding and resources to ensure the independent review can be completed as close to the initial deadline as possible 
  • Allocate funds in the budget for the next financial year to begin work on installing filtration for the toxic Rozelle stacks

Use this template to send your email directly to the Minister for Roads. Feel free to customise the email to share your personal concerns. 

Our community is rightly concerned about the health impacts of unfiltered, carcinogenic toxins being pumped out right next to our schools, parks, playgrounds, and our homes. 

Together, we can keep the pressure on the Labor government to treat this issue as a priority and to deliver real action now, without further delay.
