A quicker, safer, more reliable route connecting Western Sydney and Central Western New South Wales

Petitioner: Miss Oleta Bin Garape | Member: Saunders, Dugald | No. of Signatories: 722 | Date closed: 07/12/2020
To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly, we the concerned residents of New South Wales, wish to bring to your attention our strong and enduring support for faster, safer, and more reliable transport connections between Western Sydney and Central Western NSW. We support an upgrade that will "...reduce congestion and provide safer, more efficient, and reliable journeys in, around and through the Blue Mountains." (GWH Upgrade: May 2020) and the NSW 2040 Economic Blueprint aspirations for "Vibrant, Well Connected Cities" and "Productive, Vibrant Regions". We are driving awareness and urgency within our communities to ensure the momentum of delivering a solution delivering productivity, connectivity, and affordability for both Western Sydney and The Central West does not stall or lose steam. The productivity, economic and social benefits of high-speed transport connections are well documented and highly significant as seen in the growth of regions such as Wollongong, Newcastle, Central Coast, and the Hunter – all regions served by 100km/hr Highways and efficient rail transport. Safe, swift & efficient road connections coupled with improved rail transport between Australia's 3rd biggest economy (Western Sydney) and NSW 3rd biggest economy (Western NSW) will be the catalyst for major development of the two areas and deliver jobs, freedom, hope, and equality to the people of these regions. We ask the Legislative Assembly to expedite the process leading to the construction of a consistent 100km/hr highway link as enjoyed by all other regions adjacent to the Greater Sydney area.
