M9 - Should we be Con­cerned?

Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - Front Page -

There has been sev­eral re­ports in the na­tional press and more lo­cally on face­book about the let­ters re­ceived by some res­i­dents in Oakville and Maraylya who have been ad­vised that their prop­erty falls within the pro­posed M9 route. This has caused com­mu­nity ac­tion groups to form and pub­lic meet­ings to be held. Some changes have oc­curred to the Bells Line of Road sec­tion, but, as far as we have heard, not the route through Maraylya.

Now Maraylya is not that far from Glenorie, so res­i­dents might be con­cerned as to what hap­pens after Maraylya.

No de­tails ap­pear to be avail­able about where this road might con­tinue to, but there was a Strate­gic Re­view 2002 look­ing at op­tions to take traf­fic from the west, north, by­pass­ing Syd­ney. Three routes were con­sid­ered, A, B & C. C was cho­sen which is the NorthCon­nex tun­nel cur­rently be­ing built. In­ter­est­ingly C passes through Maraylya.

Here are some of the maps ap­pear­ing on­line (see above and page 1). The pro­posed road which stops in Maraylya, res­i­dents are call­ing it 'the road to nowhere'. Maybe one day it will go some­where, but when, who knows ....

The Glenorie Progress As­so­ci­a­tion is fol­low­ing this story, and will pub­lish up­dates as they are re­ceived.
