Inner Western Courier Thursday Not Used Anymore : December 3rd 2008
8 INNER-WEST WEEKLY, Thursday, December 4, 2008 MB Contentious project a step closer THE controversial Port Enfield project which will see thousands of trucks travelling through the Inner West, 24 hours a day, is searching for tenants and operators. The State Government called for proposals from private sector operators and tenants last Wednesday. Construction is due to begin in late 2009. ''The Enfield Intermodal will mean 300 fewer truck movements per day around the airport, Port Botany and Marrickville, or nearly 80,000 fewer movements per year,'' Ports and Waterways Minister Joe Tripodi said. ''More importantly, there'll be 240,000 fewer truck movements per year between Port Botany and Enfield, with direct rail links to Port Botany allow- ing containers to be moved by rail without entering the passenger rail network.'' ''Industry has welcomed this initiative and is keenly anticipating the oppor- tunity and we expect to have some quality submissions from operators and tenants who want to be a part of this significant development.'' However, Strathfield Council and the No Port Enfield action group are strongly against the project, saying it will create more noise pollution and traffic in the streets of the Inner West. NEWS Three charged with supply of heroin CRIME STOPPERS 1800 333 000 on the beat 1 3 2 1 THREE Inner West men have been charged with conspiracy to supply a commercial quantity of heroin and money laundering after simultaneous police raids on Tuesday. Police said the three men were allegedly connected to an organised crime ring known as the Balmain Boys. On Tuesday, police arrested a 38-year-old Rozelle man at his home; and a 30-year-old Balmain man and a 32-year-old Drummoyne man, both in Balmain, during eight simul- taneous morning raids in the Inner West. Police said they seized amounts of heroin and cash during the raids. Commander of the Organised Crime Squad Det-Supt Scott Whyte said the arrests were part of a major investigation into an organised syndicate involved in large scale drug distribution and money laundering in and around Sydney. Twelve alleged syndicate members have now been arrested by officers attached to Strike Force Fathom and Operation Maga- zine and many have been refused bail while facing court on major drug and money laundering charges. Covert inquiries on the Balmain Boys' alleged activities have been going on for four months. Pill presses and large quantities of MDMA (ecstasy) were seized. Det-Supt Whyte said further arrests were expected. Anyone with information about drug activity should contact Crime Stoppers on 18003 333 000. 2 A STRATHFIELD man was one of six people arrested after a drug sting which resulted in police seizing thousands of ecstasy tablets. Three men -- aged 20, 21 and 24 -- were surrounded in a city hotel room by Tactical Operation Unit officers and arrested shortly after 2.30pm last Friday during an alleged drug deal to supply 30,000 ecstasy tablets, worth an estimated potential street value of $1.5 million. The arrests triggered a series of raids across Sydney's west and south-west, in- cluding the search of a Lidcombe house. Two other men, aged 20 and 26, and a 17-year-old youth, were arrested at homes in Rydalmere, Strathfield and Denistone, and taken into custody for questioning. On Friday, officers allege they seized 2000 ecstasy tablets, with an estimated potential street value of $100,000. An extra 600 ecstasy tablets, as well as a quantity of steroids and a large amount of cash, were seized during the searches. And during the two-month investigation, officers will provide evidence they seized a further 4000 ecstasy tablets. Police allege all the men are connected with an organised Asian crime network trafficking in illicit drugs in the CBD. All six people have been charged with supplying a large commercial quantity of a prohibited drug and ongoing supply of a prohibited drug. 3 AN Ashfield woman was one of 52 party- goers arrested during an anti-drugs operation at the Global Gathering festival in Moore Park on Sunday. Police will allege the 35-year-old woman was carrying four different types of pro- hibited drugs at the time of her arrest. She was taken to Surry Hills police station, where she was charged with two counts each of supplying a prohibited drug and possessing a prohibited drug. She has been conditionally bailed to appear at Downing Centre Local Court on January 1. weekly news Wooden Train Set with Table 80pc • Set includes train, rails, bridge and scenery pieces • Track and accessories made from rubberwood • Table dimensions: 122.4 x 64.5 x 40.5cm Espresso Machine • 18 bar pump pressure • Stainless steel finish • LCD control panel • Removable 1.5L tank • 3 coffee temperatures • 2 memory settings for customised coffee • Hot water function • Cup warmer • Refill tank indicator light • Removable drip tray 17 kg We recommend that you bring someone to help you when transporting this item. $99 1year warranty $179 80piece Bananas per kg $1.99 per kg Mangoes each $1.99 per unit Cherries 500g $5.98 per kg Yellow Flesh Nectarines 1kg $3.99 per kg smarter shopping aldi.com.au produce prices effective 02/12/08 to 08/12/08 OPENING HOURS: See your local store or www.aldi.com.au for details.
