THE POLLUTION CON CONTINUES...........................

 

Even as the warning signs mounted, and talks had broken down between the community and the NSW

RTA over its controversial M5 East filtration plan, Planning Minister Sartor yesterday dramatically

announced the Plan's approval by his Department.

 

The plan allows the RTA to proceed to construction on a trial $ 50 million filtration plan that is a monumentally

complicated, unsustainable mess and in its current form a complete waste of taxpayers money.
