Business and councils are calling on government to commit to including a Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) route from Dee Why to Chatswood in the Northern Beaches Transport Plan to reduce congestion and create local jobs.
Congestion is hurting local businesses, meaning loss of local jobs and putting pressure on future job creation.
SHOROC supports the NSW Government’s Northern Beaches Transport Action Plan, which includes $633 million for a Mona Vale to the city Bus Rapid Transit, Warringah Road upgrades and feasibility studies for a Northern Beaches tunnel.
