Council has put up corflutes in the park to inform the hundreds of pedestrians, cyclists, light rail and bus passengers who use the park every day.
The RMS is yet to advise how pedestrians and cyclists will get to work, school and everywhere else they go via the park during construction and operation of the proposed road widening of the Crescent Annandale as part of Westconnex Stage 3.
There is an issue of trees being destroyed and increased heat island affect as well as over 25 years of Bush regeneration by volunteers.

A good time to email state and federal MPs, the Minister for Transport, the Minister for Planning, the Minster for the Environment and the Premier.
