If you haven’t already heard RMS have released a modification to the M4-M5 Rozelle Interchange which will now include a new car overpass at The Crescent and significant changes to the promised pedestrian and cyclist access routes.

The Crescent overpass and active transport links Modification will remove the continuous GreenLink connecting Rozelle across the City-West Link to the foreshore. The Greenlink was designed to safely reconnect Innerwest communities and provide direct access to the water.

There seem to be a number of significant impacts to our community and how we safely access the foreshore from Annandale, Lilyfield and Rozelle - even Forest Lodge and Glebe.

RMS are asking for feedback and it is the only opportunity to push them to look at alternate options and reinstate safe, direct access as in the approved GreenLink. We need all residents, community groups, clubs and interested groups to make a submission by Wednesday 18 September. You can do this electronically or writing to the DPIE.

Identified impacts for residents and commuters in the Innerwest wanting to access the foreshore and its facilities.

We are asking you to now spread the word to your neighbours, to your colleagues, to your clubs, to your networks, to your friends - and ask people to read the information.

From Rozelle Interchange Work notification | 28 August 2019:

"4.0 Preparation work at Buruwan Park
As part of the upgrade of the intersection of The Crescent and City West Link the area within Buruwan Park will become part of the new road. New cyclist and pedestrian connections will be established as part of the permanent design, as well as a land bridge to the up to 10-hectare park within the Rail Yards. Work will begin in September to prepare for future construction within the park and activities include:

Access to the Rozelle Bay light rail station from Bayview Crescent will be maintained at all times. Pedestrian and cyclist access through Buruwan Park will be maintained until the end of this year and traffic control will be in place when we are working, to assist pedestrians and cyclists throughout these changes.

Park with construction fencing 2.0 Site establishment work
Work continues to establish the sites and equipment we will need to construct the project. In September we begin installing the site facilities and amenities including offices and sheds, fencing and noise walls. Some permanent parking removal took effect on local streets in July and as our work progresses, further temporary and permanent parking removal will be required on local streets. Site establishment activities include:
