A public meeting at which residents can have their say about the first stage of the F6 motorway project will be held at Moorefield Bowling Club on Saturday, March 3,

The meeting, which is due to start at 2pm, is being organised jointly by two community groups, the Moorefield Estate F6 Committee and F6 Action.

Politicians invited to speak include federal Treasurer and MP for Cook Scott Morrison and Barton MP Linda Burney.

State Labor MPs Steve Kamper (Rockdale) and Chris Minns (Kogarah), as well as Greens upper house MP Mehreen Faruqi, have also been invited, along with Bayside Council mayor Bill Saravinovski.

Public transport advocate Dr Michelle Zeibots, from the University of Technology, will discuss whether freeways are needed, and Dr Paul Torzillo, a medical specialist, will talk about respiratory diseases.

A representative of public transport lobby group Eco Transit will discuss alternative forms of transport.

The first stage of the F6 extension will be a tunnel from Arncliffe to President Avenue, Kogarah.

Representatives of the Moorefield Estate-F6 Committee said they received little new information at a meeting with RMS officials late last year.
