Last Thursday a public forum was held at Vivo Café on George Street in the city, for people adversely affected by Sydney’s light rail construction.
The forum was hosted by cafe owner, City of Sydney Councillor Angela Vithoulkas, whose business has been negatively impacted by the light rail project.
Cr Vithoulkas announced that legal action seeking financial compensation from the NSW Government would be launched.
“The reason we called this meeting was because the NSW State Government has consistently said they’ve never heard anyone complain,” she said.
“I have had two forums before this, and the NSW Business Commissioner was present at both to take details of people’s stories to the NSW Cabinet. I don’t know if that happened, because they
refuse to tell me. However, the Premier was here three weeks ago and she reiterated that no one has ever complained to her about problems with the light rail.”
