So disappointing to see such an iconic venue being demolished. Motorsport venues teach our children many things and support our community in many ways. Please voice your opinion
Valvoline Raceway, an iconic tourism, entertainment and sporting icon in Sydney’s West for over forty years has been rocked by a phone call today that revealed Sydney Metro will compulsory acquire the land as part of a billion-dollar rail development between the city and Sydney’s West.
“Almost 120 properties will be forcibly acquired for construction of a $20 billion-plus metro rail line from Parramatta to the central city, which is now slated to be opened by 2030, about two years later than expected,” it was reported in The Sydney Morning Herald today.
The speedway at Granville will be demolished to make way for the new Sydney Metro West's stabling & maintenance facility says the NSW Government.
