ARAG Meeting this Wednesday

We’re back at Alexandria Town Hall, 73 Garden St, and our next meeting is 7pm, Wednesday the 14th(*).

On the Agenda:

  • Fix NSW Transport – what would really work?
  • Euston Rd/McEvoy St widening – an update
  • NBN coming to Alexandria
  • Local (over)developments

(*) And before anyone says that a residents’ group meeting isn’t romantic, remember that forewarned is forearmed, knowledge is power, and power is widely agreed to be the ultimate aphrodisiac. Bring your Valentine along!

Building a 20 billion dollar road to move a few thousand people an hour is madness. Either the tolls will be crippling for commuters, or the cost will cripple the state budget, or both.
Building a so called Metro with no more capacity than the rail line it replaces, that has stops 6 kilometres apart, where people are going to have to stand for 30km, complete madness.
Tearing up country rail lines that are vital to the continuing prosperity and even the survival of country towns and villages, worse than madness.
Come along to help the government understand, transport matters to us.
