The existence of a corridor previously known as the “Castleteagh Freeway” has provided the community, government and businesses with certainty for the planning and purchase of property since 1951. This corridor has been referenced by successive State Governments as a potential site for a road connecting the Hawkesbury and Blue Mountains to the Sydney motorway and arterial road network. The land that is impacted by the 1951 corridor has been left vacant in anticipation of this future road that is presumed by the reservation of the corridor. The suburbs of Llandilo, Castlereagh, and Cranbrook have been aware of this corridor since it was first gazetted, with many families and businesses planning their lives around the corridor to ensure their properties and livelihoods were safe from potential property acquisition. The certainty provided by the 1951 Castkereagh Corridor was ended on Monday 26 March 2018 when new draft corridors were announced by the state government. The new draft will directly impact hundreds of properties, homes and businesses in the affected suburbs.

Whilst the community is not opposed to new infrastructure in Western Sydney, the old corridor has been the basis of all local planning for decades. This sudden change has taken residents and bussinesses by surprise with no consultation whatsoever. This new corridor will have a devastating impact on these communities.

Who is paying for the acquisition of the properties for the new corridor is it Stuart Ayres or the tax payers of Australia?
