What was the total amount paid by Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) to
acquire the former sites owned by Muirs on Parramatta Road, Haberfield?
Will this residual land be returned to the community as legacy land at the
conclusion of construction for the M4-M5 project?
Will this residual land be offered to Inner West Council, as is the case
with other legacy land lots identified for the M4 East project?
If not, what will be the proposed future use of the sites?
Why did the RMS purchase the Muirs sites when it is unclear what is required
in Haberfield and Ashfield for the M4-M5 Link project?
I am advised:
(1) Roads and Maritime purchased the land by agreement with the owners. This
information is available from Land and Registry Services.
(2) and (3) Use of residual land will be determined in the M4-M5 Link
Residual Land Management Plan and the M4-M5 Link's Urban Design and Landscaping
Plan, pursuant to the planning approval for the M4-M5 Link.
(4) Roads and Maritime Services identified it as a potential construction
site for the M4-M5 Link. Further, the owners of the site expressed concerns as
to the shallow nature of the subsurface acquisitions. The site will be used in
accordance with the conditions of approval issued by the Minister for Planning
on 17 April 2018.
