City of Melbourne: East West Link Public Meetings – 8th October & 13 November 2013

City of Melbourne: East West Link Public Meetings

Live in the City of Melbourne and want to get those four councillors off the fence, including the Lord Mayor, so they vote against the proposed East West Link? Get to this meeting on Tuesday 8th October. Please forward this information – lets really make them listen.

From City of Melbourne: East West Link Public Meetings
The Linking Melbourne Authority (LMA) is delivering the Victorian Governments East West Link project connecting the Eastern Freeway with CityLink – with a further route to the Port of Melbourne under consideration.

City of Melbourne has conducted a Preliminary Assessment of the LMA reference design of East West Link and will present it to the public on 8 October 2013. The LMA will release a Comprehensive Impact Statement (CIS) on 1 November 2013. The City of Melbourne will prepare a submission to the CIS and report this to the 10 December Future Melbourne Committee (FMC). The submission will include the Preliminary Assessment and will be informed by the community’s feedback obtained through two evening sessions:

1. A public meeting on 8 October 2013 from 5.30pm to 7pm where you will hear about the City of Melbourne’s Preliminary Assessment and have an opportunity to provide us with feedback. (Note: This meeting is prior to the release of the CIS and the LMA will not be in attendance).

2. Public information evening on 13 November 2013 where you can drop by at your convenience between 5.30 pm and 8.30 pm. A team of specialists from the LMA will be in attendance to answer your questions about the project and the CIS. The City of Melbourne will also present its Preliminary Assessment and seek your feedback to inform its submission to the LMA’s CIS.

We want your help to decide what questions should be answered as a matter of priority at the public meeting on 8 October 2013.

The question topics are: social impacts, traffic and transport, urban design and open space impacts. Please use the Forum Tool below to post your questions and vote for the ones that you would like us to prioritise.

You can RSVP to either or both meetings at
