Your Trust has invited Eco-Transit to come and present their insights on this notable down-sizing of the NWRL … including single deck carriages and the likelihood that privatisation is part of a Metro system now planned for Sydney’s long suffering North-West. Our NSW Parliamentary representative, Hon Greg Smith, SC MP will attend. The NSW Shadow Transport Minister, Penny Sharpe, has agreed to attend and speak briefly at our meeting. We also expect local Councillors to attend and support resident concerns.
