Moorebank Intermodal Terminal
The Federal Government has propose the establishment of an Intermodal Terminal in Moorebank within 4klms of Liverpool CBD. The terminal location is alongside the Georges river upstream of the Liverpool Wier. The previous establishment of ten schools within a 3000m radius of the site concerns locals as does the close proximity of Wattle Grove Defence Integration Project ( 7000 Population) and Casula suburb ( 10,000 population). In the course of investigations the community has become aware of the Sydney Freight Plan and is alarmed at the lack of consideration for Casula Residents whom are affected so badly by the proposed southern Sydney Heavy Freight Rail line. The Expansion of Port Botany is a decision with serious ramifications for so many , yet has not recieved enough media attention. The Governments must recognise the existence of residential areas and accomodate the amenity of same into planning and execution of the projects or face eternal protests and community discord.
