When Dora Makaritis realised the route of the WestConnex motorway would run under the inner west suburb of Croydon, she immediately became concerned about the impact of digging a six-lane tunnel under her home.
So she asked the WestConnex Delivery Authority, multiple times, why the motorway would run under her suburb and not 300 metres north under Parramatta Road.
And she was told, multiple times, it had nothing to do with potential property development.
As well as Ms Makaritis and her neighbour Tarja Shephard, Labor's roads spokeswoman and Member for Strathfield Jodi McKay said she also feels misled by this aspect of the WestConnex project.
"I was told numerous times by the WDA that the reason for avoiding Parramatta Road had nothing to do with development," Ms McKay said. "They were categorical."
