Event description

Description

Imagine a train service to and from Sydney every 15 minutes with slick connections to local stations. Imagine getting a seat every time even in peak hour.

Other countries and cities have great train services - it’s possible, but only if there is the political will to make it happen. We need a State government that will commit money to improve rail infrastructure and who will lobby hard for Federal infrastructure money to be allocated to the Illawarra.

There will be a State election in NSW in March 2019. Let’s convince politicians that this is a hot issue for voters.

Come to a public meeting to express your ideas and call for specific improvements like:

  • Extra carriages on the current overcrowded 4 car services

  • Increase seating capacity on proposed new 2019 fleet

  • Tunnel from Thirroul to Waterfall


Monday 28th May

7pm-8:30

Panel:
