We all want cleaner air, more green space, fewer cars and trucks on our streets, and healthier neighbourhoods for our children to grow up in.
But in the western suburbs of Melbourne, this vision has been out of reach for many years thanks to a shortage of green space, our industrial legacy and most importantly, the 22,000 container trucks that travel through inner west streets each day.
Because of diesel pollution from trucks on our local streets, kids in Maribyrnong are suffering from asthma at twice the national average rate, and three times the rate of children in Stonnington. This situation is unacceptable!
Here are some of our campaigns that we are working on for a cleaner, healthier west!
