People Forced to Sleep with Masks to Escape Westconnex Construction Stench

Toxic dumping ground linked to the Westconnex project has caused some residents in Sydney’s inner west to take measures to protect their health.

Residents in the area complained of a foul smell and sickness causing them to sleep with gas masks on.

The giant pile that is the source of the contention is the result of decades worth of waste buried in the old Alexandria Landfill in St Peters.

When completed, it will form a lookout adjacent to the new Westconnex interchange.

Headaches and irritated eyes are some of the symptoms residents say they are experiencing due to  the smell, which they compared to rotten eggs.

Odour suppressants have been applied along the border of the site and the Sydney Motorways Corporation is said to be offering their full cooperation to the EPA.
