M2 Widening Project Completes Mid Auguest

Hills M2 project advise the widening project will complete early August with 100 kph speed limits restored both ways.

NWRL Meeting

There was a good turnout for the meeting, about 125 people, including three Hornsby Shire Councillors.  If nothing else people learnt what is proposed for the metro NWRL, although nobody could explain why it is being built this way instead of as something that can integrate with the rest of the Sydney rail network.
Apparently a lot of work is now being done by CityRail or whatever it is called this week, to adapt to suit the change of NWRL from integrated and going to the city, into stand-alone metro stopping at Chatswood.

Community Meeting about NWRL

Many of you will have heard that Gladys Berejiklian had agreed to attend a meeting in the Cheltenham Rec Club on Monday 29 July, but has since advised she cannot attend.

The meeting will go ahead anyway with a question and answer format.  The president Rod Best will read out questions received from the public, and invite the Trust Committee and members of the audience to discuss each issue.  We will then be able to present a synopis of that discussion to the Minister.

If you have a question you would like included in the discussion, send it to comment@2119.org.au
See you there!
