Labor’s claims that train stations in the Gosford electorate would not be receiving step-free access are false.
I can confirm that both Point Clare and Narara Stations will be upgraded to step-free access as part of the next stage of the Transport Access Program.
Hawkesbury River Station will also have lifts installed, which will benefit those people from the Gosford electorate who live in Mooney Mooney.
In 2011, when the Liberal’s came to Government, accessible public transport had been neglected.
Labor was only doing two access upgrades a year, and it would have taken them 90 years to upgrade all stations on the network.
The Liberal state government are also upgrading station access at Niagara Park, Lisarow, Ourimbah and Tuggerah, thanks to the advocacy of Liberal Candidate for The Entrance, Brian Perrem.
I am proud to have been part of a team that has listened to Gosford residents.
We know that accessible transport is key to a good quality of life, so we made these upgrades a top priority.
