North East Link - Members Statement
Wednesday, 19 June 2019
Mr T SMITH: The North East Link is a huge issue for the communities in North Balwyn and Kew East, and the loss of 25 000 trees, in particular at Koonung Creek Reserve, whilst this project is constructed is a grave concern. That is an important local park where families walk their pets and enjoy important time together, and to see it being destroyed for an expansion of the Eastern Freeway is of grave concern to my residents. Equally, the destruction of the Boroondara Tennis Centre on the other side of the freeway will have a direct impact on families who play tennis and enjoy that important sport throughout my electorate.
