    The Chamber had the opportunity to attend the Blacktown City Council Transport Forum on 15 Nov 2019 

    The Panel of experts were ;

    Michelle Zeibots, Research Director UTS Transport Research Centre

    Geoff Cahill, Director Corridor Preservation, Transport Networks

    Greg Woodhams, Executive Director City Projects Greater Sydney Commission

    Kerry Robinson, CEO Blacktown City Council

    Tony Bleasdale open the forum welcoming everyone his speech expressed his concern that Blacktown was being ignored despite Councils constant attempts to engage with Planning and the RMS.

    Blacktown City Council are very Proud of their achievement and are excited for the dynamic shift that the partnership with Australian Catholic Universities will bring to Blacktown. 

    Blacktown is attracting investment especially in Marsden Park / Schofields and Blacktown Medical precinct undergoing massive growth 

    Bring more people to the city will create increased traffic, the transport solutions need to be delivered at the same rate as the residential and commercial development.  Transport infrastructure needs to manage growth 

    Bandon Rd Upgrade was due to be completed when the growth area reached 25% we are now at 28% with no commitment 

    The plan for Garfield Rd has been changed to a grade separation rather than overpass with no further commitment

    The North West Road Strategy is FALLING BEHIND!!

    Development in Blacktown is 3 to 4 years ahead of development plan 

    The area is predicted to house 250k people by 2036 with current trends show projected growth was massively under stated 

    Infrastructure is way behind and will won’t cope this new population projections  

    Stephen Bali Member for Blacktown asked the Forum " Why does the government hate Blacktown"

    The message is clear we need to FIX THE TRAFFIC
