Re the article ‘‘Plea over cracks’’ (Leader, March 2).
Allen and Christine Wong Wan Po, I am sorry to hear WestConnex denied responsibility for major cracks, that have developed in the walls, of your family home.
You state that the home did not have a single crack when purchased five years ago.
Living 30 metres from where a deep excavation for the King Georges Road interchange took place, how can a spokeswoman, for Sydney Motorway Corporation, agree with their organisation’s engineers report, and respond to you: “Based on these assessments, there was no damage to either of these properties that could be attributed to the construction work.”
I also hope Premier Gladys Berejiklian looks into your case and finds a fair and lawful answer.
Looking at the architecture of the house, it looks like it is art deco design, so over 50 years old minimum.
The Sydney Motorway Corporation said they did reports before and after and “there was no damage to either of these properties that could be attributed to the construction work".
Mr and Mrs Po need to take their insurance companies to court, they should be paying for the damage, and the insurance company re-couping the cost from the Sydney Motorway Corporation.
Ridiculous! Of course working in the area would cause earth movements and vibrations
How else would the cracks get there.
