NSW Government Approves Sydney Light Rail Compensation!

GOVERNMENT AWARDS COMPENSATION FOR BUSINESSES AFFECTED BY LIGHT RAIL

In a major victory, The NSW Liberal Government has finally acknowledged that people’s lives and livelihoods have been destroyed and decimated by their Sydney Light Rail project and they have announced a compensation plan.

At this stage, we believe it is only for businesses, but this is a real milestone in the campaign, and certainly a step in the right direction.

We believe that this compensation also needs to be extended to residents adversely impacted by the destruction work, loss of amenity, and that the class action should also include the loss of our trees, wildlife, Aboriginal Artefacts, buses, jobs, and everything else this project has taken from us.

If you know any business and/or residents that have been affected in any way by the light rail,

Contact Transport Minister Andrew Constance 02 8574 5807 to lodge your compensation claim and call Premier Gladys Berejiklian 02 8574 5000 to Cancel the Light Rail project and save $3.5 Billion for NSW,
