A new community group, F6 Action, has been formed “to raise awareness about the risks associated” with the proposed motorway extension.

The group said it was highlighting problems that would result from unfiltered exhaust stacks, construction noise, rezoning of the existing reserve, gridlock on feeder roads and massive congestion on President Avenue, where stage one of the project will end.

Roads and Traffic Authority (RMS) has included a scoping report in its application to have the project declared a State Significant Development.

F6 Action spokeswoman Greta Werner said they were encouraging residents to voice their concerns before the December 22 deadline for public comment on the application.

Residents are asked to email: f6extension@rms.nsw.gov.au or write to: Roads and Maritime Services, Locked Bag 928, North Sydney NSW 2059.

“Copy your email to f6action@gmail.com so that an independent tally can be kept,” Ms Werner said.

A message can also be sent easily in F6 Action’s online letter to RMS at:  https://f6campaign.good.do/f6action/msgtoRMS/ 

Meanwhile, it has been revealed the Brighton Memorial Fields, adjoining Bicentennial Park East, which the scoping report says are required for the southern interchange, are owned by Bayside Council, not the Education Department, as originally reported.

The council acquired the fields from the department some years ago.
