The four SHOROC Mayors of Manly, Mosman, Pittwater and Warringah are disappointed the region has once again been blatantly ignored by the NSW Government in its latest transport blueprint.

“Once again residents of Manly, Mosman, Pittwater and Warringah have been left stuck in traffic by the NSW Government with no real transport solution for the region”, said SHOROC President and Mosman Mayor Anne Connon.

“Our residents are sitting gridlocked in their cars or jammed into overcrowded buses every day”.

“This plan includes no improvement to our poor quality public transport, no upgrades to the critical East/West corridors of Warringah Road and Mona Vale Road, no plan to fix the Spit Bridge/Military Road gridlock. In fact our region is an obvious omission with no plans for any works at all”, said Mayor Connon.

The four councils that make up SHOROC, the Shore Regional Organisation of Councils (Manly, Mosman, Pittwater and Warringah), are currently seeking to address this absence of a plan on key issues for the region from the NSW Government by developing an overall plan for the direction of the SHOROC region.

“Mosman, Manly, Warringah and Pittwater Councils work collaboratively on a range of issues. SHOROC Regional Directions will set out the long term strategic direction for the region, outlining priority investment and major directions for transport, health, housing and employment, to maintain and enhance the region’s way of life, sustainability and significant contribution to Sydney as a global city. SHOROC Regional Directions will bring all of our plans together to provide a clear direction and a better deal for the people and environment of our region”, said Mayor Connon.
