Larissa Penn, a spokeswoman for the Coalition of Tunnel Concerned Communities, said the risks associated with the construction of the tunnel had not been fully assessed.
“Our kids play school sports nearby, swim at Northbridge Baths and Clontarf and go out on the Harbour and the health risk assessment hasn’t considered the baths, impacts of runoff or the probability of a spill,” she said.
Ms Penn also expressed concern about the impact of the construction on residents including noise, dust and heavy vehicle movements.
“Major infrastructure shouldn’t put communities, the environment and workers at unreasonable risk and benefits should clearly outweigh the full range of costs,” she said.
