NWRL Take-down of Epping to Chatswood Line

NWRL recently released a brochure on the Epping to Chatswood railway upgrade. It identifies northern line customers from between Hornsby and Cheltenham who currently use the Epping to Chatswood railway as part of a direct rail service to the lower North Shore and the city as a sector requiring temporary transport.
Whilst bus routes 1 and 2 go from Epping, bus route 3 goes from Beecroft to Macquarie University, Macquarie Park to St Leonards. It appears from the map to go down the M2. This bus will travel through Cheltenham but will not pick up at Cheltenham! Residents are irate and have been told they will have to get the train to Epping or Beecroft and catch the bus there.
The Trust is asking our local MP, on behalf of the community, to ask the Transport Minister to have this bus stop in Cheltenham even if it is in Beecroft Rd, and also to clarify if the trains from our Northern Line from Hornsby will continue to the city (Wynyard) via Strathfield or if they will terminate at Central during this supposed "upgrade".
