Candidates for the NSW Elections have provided detailed responses to SHOROC on their commitments for the region.
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.
“The missing pieces of the Northern Beaches Transport Plan that are key to addressing this congestion are a Warringah Road Bus Rapid Transit route and progressing the tunnel linking the region with the CBD.”
Members of the NSW Business Chamber in the Sydney North region are also calling for a Warringah Road Bus Rapid Transit route that will allow them to get on with growing their businesses.
The SHOROC partner councils – Manly, Mosman, Pittwater and Warringah – are changing the way no stopping zones are displayed and are spreading the message to make sure the community is aware of these changes and to improve street safety.
Record transport and health infrastructure funding for the Northern Beaches and Mosman as well as SHOROC being awarded the state’s highest accolade in planning excellence have been highlighted the SHOROC 2013-14 Annual Report.
The highest honour for excellence in NSW planning has been conferred on Manly, Mosman, Pittwater and Warringah councils, with SHOROC awarded the ‘President’s Award’ by the Planning Institute of Australia (PIA) at its annual gala ceremony last night.
