Protestors of the proposed WestConnex project

Police were called out to one geotechnical investigation site in metro Sydney, Australia last week after residents unhappy with the proposed WestConnex project entered the work site. The crew abandoned drilling tools and equipment on the site, an apartment complex. WestConnex geotechnical contractors canceled another planned investigation as well based on the public reaction. Residents of the apartments were notified in advance of the work, and WestConnex indicated that the proper permission for drilling had been obtained from property owners and/or apartment complex management. But there is clearly a very vocal group of opponents to the project that would link the congested M4 motorway to Sydney Airport and Botany Bay.
