Lack of transport strategy raised at MPs' roundtable

The lack of a strategic and comprehensive transport network was one of the issues raised at a Regional Transport and Roads Roundtable held at Ocean Beach Surf Club on August 24.

Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch said that "transport stakeholders" told her and Shadow Minister for Regional Transport and Roads Ms Jenny Aitchison about a myriad of chronic road, traffic and safety issues.

She said the stakeholders were from local government, the business community, transport advocacy services, local police, transport services and community transport providers.

Other issues included the lack of public transport infrastructure, the need for more school bus services and the need for more walking or cycling to school.

She said increased maintenance of local roads and better school bus infrastructure were requested to improve safety.

Local taxi operators spoke of the Government's 2016 "point-to-point reforms" costing them money.

She said upgrades to the Point Clare railway station had left commuters with a disability without safe options for months.

"It was fabulous to hear from stakeholders from across the spectrum," she said.

"Every aspect of transport on the Central Coast is important for us to have a great quality of life.

"As our population grows, our transport infrastructure must grow with it."

Ms Aitchison said: "We need a comprehensive strategic plan for roads and transport in the Central Coast."
