New South Wales shadow transport minister Jodi McKay has requested that an independent property assessment panel be introduced to help alleviate the concerns of residents and supervise the remediation, reparations and independent appeals, if required. This is common sense, and the New South Wales government should come on board this commonsense proposal. It follows, of course, the underpayment of people who had their properties compulsorily resumed for the project. It follows, of course, the New South Wales coalition government continuing to refuse to consider filtering the exhaust stacks being built in the inner west for the project, while they say that exhaust stacks will be necessary for any road on the North Shore of Sydney.
