NWRL Consultation

Interesting to hear that Minister for Transport Gladys Berejiklian today welcomed a major national award which recognises the strong and focused community consultation on the NSW Government’s $8.3 billion North West Rail Link project. Most locals would agree there has been substantial community dictation by the project but apparently the communication has been all one way. Can you have one way consultation?
The judges found "The consultation was focused on building a relationship with the community based on confidence in the process and where community objectives prevailed over engineering solutions.”

The judges have obviously not been advised about the widespread community concern about the height of the tunnels, the unjustified conversion to metro, and the expected hiatus that will happen at Epping and Chatswood stations due to the inability of the NWRL trains to go on to the city.
