Road funding for Blackwall and Woy Woy promised by the Liberals in the Gosford by-election has not been included in the NSW budget, according to the State Member for Gosford Ms Liesl Tesch.
“We have just seen a State Budget that has provided no sight of the $48 million roads package promised by the Liberals during the by-election.”
Road funding for the Peninsula that was promised during the by-election included a safety upgrade of Woy Woy Rd, an upgrade of Maitland Bay Dr, Blackwall Rd and Dunban Rd in Woy Woy.
Ms Tesch did say she was “thrilled” the NSW Government was funding additional bus services, but would wait to see what this would actually mean for people on the Peninsula.
“One hundred extra services per week spread across four different routes will only see one or two extra buses each day,” she said.
“The Government needs to work with the community and with Busways to ensure that these services are run at times that are useful for Peninsula residents to be able to get to Erina Fair and back in a reasonable time.”
