NSROC Submission to NSW Long Term Transport Master Plan Discussion Paper

 

Transport is a critical issue for the Northern Sydney and improving public and private transport is essential to the social, economic and environmental sustainability of our region. In 2005 the Federal Government estimated the total cost of congestion to Sydney was around $3.5 billion each year and would rise to nearly $8 billion each year by 2020 if improvements were not made. NSROC top transport priorities  are:

  • North-West Rail or Metro link
  • Parramatta to Epping Rail link
  • Second Habrour bridge rail crossing and faster North Shore line
  • Bus or light rail link from Chatswood to Northern Beaches
  • Transport Strategies for Military-Spit Corridor, Victoria Road Pennant Hills road and the Pacific Highway
  • Completion of the M2-F3 link into the Sydney Orbital
  • Improved regional rail services to the Central Coast and Newcastle.
