HUNTER REGIONAL TRANSPORT PLAN – THREE YEARS WAIT FOR NOT MUCH
After three years the O’Farrell Government has quietly released their Hunter Regional Transport Plan on to the Transport for NSW website – highlighting just how embarrassed they are of their own plan, Shadow Transport Minister Penny Sharpe said today.
“It is no wonder the O’Farrell Government didn’t even bother to come to the Hunter to launch this plan. They know there is nothing new in it,” said Shadow Minister for Transport, Penny Sharpe.
“This plan does not commit one extra cent for public transport in the Hunter.
“The plan is padded out with a list of projects started and completed under the previous government and projects that would have been completed under existing funding.”
